Over the limit driver admitted crash was his fault


A Portadown man was banned from driving for 14 months last Friday at Craigavon Court.

David Girvan (24), Ashgrove Manor, Portadown, was also fined £200 for driving while unfit on April 4.

The court heard that at 8.15pm a road traffic collision occurred on the Carrickblacker Road.

Girvan had collided with the rear of a parked vehicle and admitted to police that he had consumed alcohol and the collision was his fault.

A barrister representing the defendant said that very foolishly he decided to drive a short distance.
