Teen denies string of driving offences

A man who denies a string of motoring offences, including crashing into two parked cars, will appear in court again in April.

Tyler Jack Snape of no fixed address appeared before Deputy High Bailiff Jayne Hughes at Douglas Courthouse.

He’s accused of failing to stop when asked by police, dangerous driving, driving whilst disqualified, having no insurance and failing to stop after a crash.

James Robinson, prosecuting, said all the offences are alleged to have been committed earlier this year.

Mr Snape is said to have driven his silver Peugeot through Douglas on January 14, heading the wrong way down a one-way street, driving through a red traffic light and ignoring stop signs.

The 19 year old is also said to have crashed his car on Westmoreland Road, damaging two other vehicles.

Bail was granted in the sum of £500 on condition he lives with his stepfather on Anagh Coar Road, doesn’t drive, and observes a curfew between 9pm and 6am.

He’ll appear in court for a pre-trial review on April 2.
