Teen admits dangerous driving after crashing at Creg

Fri, 27 May 2016


A teenager from Peel who crashed his car after "showing off" to his passengers will be sentenced in July.
 
18-year-old Nicholas O'Dell came off the road at the Creg Ny Baa on January 8th - at Douglas Courthouse this week he admitted dangerous driving. 
 
He'd given two female friends a lift to Ramsey from the Isle of Man College in his Ford Fiesta - on the way back they travelled along the Mountain Road. 
 
During this journey he overtook a bus and taxi and was driving on the wrong side of the road when approaching corners - his driving was described as "dangerous and unsafe". 
 
On the approach to the Creg Ny Baa O'dell was said to be travelling at 95 miles per hour - his passengers were shouting at him to slow down when his brakes locked and he crashed. 
 
The girls in the car - who were 17 at the time - were both injured; one had to spend five days in hospital with 'snapped tendons' in her neck. 
 
Social enquiry reports have been requested before O'dell is sentenced on July 4th - he's been bailed in the meantime.
