When she pulled out from a petrol station entrance a 35-year-old woman struck a car which was propelled into another vehicle.

Maria Bradley, Clendinning Drive, Portadown, was fined £120 last Friday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for driving without due care and attention on February 18 this year.

She was also ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy and given four penalty points.

The court heard a road traffic collision happened near the Supervalu petrol station at the Banbridge Road in Lurgan.

The defendant drove out onto the Banbridge Road and collided with a car coming from Flush Place which was shunted into another car.

Bradley admitted responsibility at the scene.

A barrister representing the defendant said she accepted full responsibility at the scene and no-one was seriously injured.

She added that her client had no explanation for what happened but this was a very stressful period of her life and she had a lot on her mind.

Bradley had a clear driving record.
