Footballer Russell banned from driving
Former Bermuda footballer Antwan Russell was banned from driving yesterday for two years after crashing into a cyclist on his motorcycle.
Russell, who was part of Robin Hood’s FA Cup-winning team last month, admitted causing grievous bodily harm by careless driving in Flatts Village on March 31.
Magistrates’ Court heard how Russell, 31, from Warwick, tried to turn right while travelling west near Flatts Menswear and collided with the cyclist who had the right of way.
The cyclist was knocked to the ground and suffered injuries including a broken finger and cuts to his chin and face.
Russell also admitted driving with no driver’s licence.
In court, Russell referred to the death of his brother, fellow Bermuda footballer Tokia Russell, who was killed after his bike collided with a car in June 2016.
He said: “I lost my brother to the roads and the guy who killed my brother didn’t face charges.”
Russell was fined $2,000 and banned from the road for two years for causing grievous bodily harm by careless driving and was ordered to pay an extra $150 for driving with no licence.
