Three Passangers Injured in Stolen Car Accident

Three passengers received hospital treatment after a car which was taken without the owners permission, crashed in to a wall. 

The driver took a Vauxhall Corsa belonging to his mother’s ex-partner while he was asleep on the couch in the living room of the driver’s home. 

Magistrates heard how the 21-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, drove to Matlock with friends. 

On the way back he lost control of the vehicle on a bend and crashed into a dry-stone wall. 

He proceeded to flee the scene and the three passengers were taken to hospital, one of which has a broken wrist. 

The driver was later arrested after a struggle with police and “He initially denied all knowledge of the driving incident,” said the prosecuting solicitor. 

The driver admitted charges of aggravated vehicle-taking, failing to stop at the scene of an accident and driving without insurance and a full licence. 

“They had a row and he decided to visit his step-father. He fell asleep and Dwayne took the opportunity to take the car,” his solicitor revealed.
