Scales of justice

Victoria Capper (29), Teagy Road, Portadown, was convicted of driving without due care and attention on September 5 this year.

She was fined £75, ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy and given three points.

The court heard that at 6.19pm police were notified of a single vehicle road traffic accident on the Moy Road, Portadown.

They found a car lying on its roof in a field near to the main road. The defendant was lying two metres from the upturned vehicle.

At a later date she attended at a police station and said she had no recollection of what happened but admitted she had been driving at the time.

Capper did not appear in court and a conviction was recorded. In a letter to the court she said that she had a clean licence and had been driving for eight years.

She added that she could not remember anything before the accident until she was in the ambulance.
