A CRASH driver who fled the scene has been fined by magistrates.

Christopher Pratt entered a guilty plea to one count of failing to stop after a road accident and one count of using a motor vehicle on a road or public place without third party insurance to magistrates in Worcester in November.

The court heard from the prosecutor that the 44-year-old had been involved in a crash in which damage was caused to another vehicle in Ledbury's Orchard Lane Tesco supermarket car park while behind the wheel of a Ford Kuga on April 8.


But, magistrates heard, he had failed to stop at the scene or to give his name and address to the owner of the other vehicle.

He was also found to have been driving without insurance on the same date, the court was told.

Pratt, of The Homend, Ledbury, was fined £666 for each offence and received seven penalty points on his licence.

He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £110 and a £533 victim surcharge.
