Driver faces trial over injured biker

A Union Mills man who's been accused of injuring a teenage biker will be committed to stand trial next month.  

26-year-old Ryan Kneen, of Close Y Lhergy, appeared for mention at Douglas Courthouse earlier this week via live video link. 

He's accused of causing serious bodily harm by dangerous driving on April 15th. 

The offence, which allegedly happened on Peel Road in Union Mills, can only be tried at the Court of General Gaol Delivery - committal proceedings will take place on June 13th. 

He's previously pleaded not guilty to a string of motoring offences, relating to the same incident, including drink driving, driving whilst disqualified and failing to stop and report an accident. 

He's also denied taking a vehicle without the owner's consent and having no insurance. 

There was no application for bail and he was remanded at the Isle of Man Prison.
