Whiplash in stolen vehicle accident

A young man has admitted taking his mother's car without her permission and causing a two-vehicle car crash in which the other driver suffered a whiplash injury.

The teenager from Cumbria confessed to taking his mum's car without her permission, driving without insurance and driving without due care and attention, ultimately causing the car crash.

In mitigation, the boy's solicitor said, "He did this foolish thing because he was late for work. He wouldn't have got to work without some transport and made this snap decision."

The 19-year-old was punished with a one-year driving ban and fines amounting to nearly £300.

It is now possible that the other driver may mount a no win, no fee car crash claim for the whiplash injury he sustained in the accident with an uninsured driver.
