Man banned for East End crash
A 50-year-old man was banned from the roads for two years yesterday over an East End crash that injured two of his co-workers.
Robin Munroe, from Warwick, pleaded guilty in Magistrates’ Court to two counts of causing grievous bodily harm by driving without due care and attention.
The court heard that a truck driver was forced to pull over on South Road when its tailgate dropped open.
A second man travelling on a motorcycle stopped to assist.
Munroe’s car hit both men and their vehicles. The two men suffered fractures, cuts and bruises as a result of the impact.
Munroe told the court that both of the men he hit were co-workers and friends.
He said that the incident had caused him “significant angst”.
He added that he had been blinded by the sun and tried to avoid the collision.
The incident happened in St George’s two years ago.
Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo fined Munroe a total of $4,000 — $2,000 for each offence.
