A court has heard how a drink and drug driver left a woman with devastating injuries after his car span out of control at a seaside resort.

48 year old Michael Hodgkins, from Thirlmere Road in Redcar, had drunk at least five pints of stout and had cannabis in his system before he got behind the wheel of his BMW in Whitby on August 5th last year.

Hodgkins drove at speed through a residential area, before losing control of the BMW and hitting a 45-year-old woman, who was crushed against a wall.

Police were quickly on the scene and Hodgkins was arrested and charged with causing serious injury by dangerous driving and driving over the prescribed limit.

Appearing at York Crown Court on Friday, Hodgkins admitted the offences and was jailed for 32 months, and banned him from driving for three years.

 

Job seekers in our area are being encouraged to attend special awareness sessions this month to give their employment prospects a New Year boost.

People interested in a career in the care sector are invited to Redcar & Cleveland College tomorrow between 10am and 11am, to find out about both the vital role carers perform and the NVQ level adult social care training course.

Covering first aid, food hygiene and basic care giving, the course also guarantees a job interview with a local care provider to all successful students.
