A COURT heard a motorist collided with another vehicle on the Lisnevenagh Road dual-carriageway between Antrim and Ballymena but was then able to reverse back at a junction only to hit another vehicle queuing behind during the evening rush hour.

David Wilson (40), of Condiere Avenue, Connor, was in an uninsured BMW around 5pm on Friday June 14 last year.

A prosecutor told Ballymena Magistrates Court the defendant pulled out in front of traffic and after a collision with a vehicle he reversed back and then struck a second vehicle.

A defence solicitor said the defendant’s car had been “jutting out” and then reversed back in.

The court was told the prosecution involved the second collision.

The defence solicitor said Wilson had not got round to insuring his car since getting it and decided to use in connection with children coming home from school.

District Judge Nigel Broderick said anyone who “takes a chance” by driving in the knowledge they do not have insurance can expect to be disualified.

The defendant admitted charges of driving without due care and attention and using a vehicle without insurance or MOT and was banned from the road for two months and fined £400.
