North Yorkshire woman sentenced for driving offences
9:45am 5th September 2012
A woman from Stillington has been banned from driving and fined after two people were seriously hurt in a crash last November.
Tara Michelle Robinson left the scene of the smash on B1363 at Sutton on the Forest but was stopped by a witness.
She has to retake her driving test and pay nearly a thousand pounds in fines and costs as she was found guilty of driving without due care and attention.
The pair who were hurt had to spend a number of weeks in hospital recovering.
North Yorkshire Police Statement:
A Stillington woman has been fined and banned from driving following a collision in November 2011.
Tara Michelle Robinson, of Main Street, Stillington was reported for summons following a collision which occurred just outside York at 1pm on Sunday 20 November 2011. She was charged with driving without due care and attention when she appeared at Northallerton Magistrates' Court on Thursday 30 August 2012. Robinson was disqualified from driving until she has retaken her driving test, fined £440, ordered to pay costs of £500 and a victim surcharge of £15.
As a result of the collision, the drivers of the two other vehicles involved and a front seat passenger sustained serious injuries and spent a number of weeks in hospital.
Following the incident Robinson left the scene, only returning when stopped by a member of the public who had witnessed the collision.
Traffic Constable Lee Cobb, of North Yorkshire Police's Roads Policing Group, said:
“Throughout the investigation Tara Robinson denied any responsibility for causing the collision. The punishment handed down by the court clearly shows that they did not believe her version of events.
“I would also like to thank the members of the public who identified Robinson and made her return to the scene of the collision. Without their help we may never have managed to identify the person responsible.”
