Welsh motorist disqualified following hit and run crash

A hit and run driver who caused a road traffic accident that left a motorcyclist with life-changing injuries has been banned from driving for 12 months.

The 48-year-old from Amllwch in Wales appeared at Holyhead Magistrates Court following the car crash, which took place in June 2010.

The motorist had been driving a Vauxhall Motor Van when he collided with a motorcyclist on a road in Rhosgoch, Ynys Mon (Isle of Anglesey). The motorcyclist suffered severe personal injuries in the accident and was left lying in the road when the driver fled the scene of the incident.

Police later found the driver and charged him with driving without due care and attention, failing to stop after an accident, and failing to report an accident.

The magistrates disqualified him from driving for 12 months and ordered him to carry out 300 hours of community service with court costs of £650.

It has not yet been reported whether the injured motorcyclist will seek road traffic accident compensation.
