Have your say

A DRIVER has been fined for failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

Whitley Clarke admitted driving a Fiat Punto that collided with a Ford Fiesta in Worldham Road, Havant, on October 5, and failing to stop.

The 19-year-old, from Jessie Road, Havant, was banned from driving for six months, fined £150 and ordered to pay £15 into a fund for victims of crime by Fareham magistrates.

Clarke had also pleaded guilty to two other charges of driving without due care and attention and failing to report the accident within 24 hours of the smash.

However no separate penalty was given.

A charge of driving the vehicle otherwise than in accordance with a licence was withdrawn.
