A motorist who drove off after he ran over another person’s foot has had his case adjourned at Dundalk district court.

A motorist who drove off after he ran over another person’s foot has had his case adjourned at Dundalk district court.

David Geraghty with an address at John Street, Ardee was prosecuted for four hit-and-run offences arising out of the incident at Mullaharlin Park, Dundalk on the 24th of September last year.

The court heard he’d been asked to move his car as it was blocking a neighbour in and the incident occurred as he was being given directions by two different people.

The defence said the 37-year-old had panicked and left the scene, but had returned and given his details to the gardai.

The court was told the accused is on a disability allowance, while the defence explained Mr. Geraghty had attended St. Brigid’s School in Dundalk and did not realise the serious consequences of him failing to remain at the scene.

After he heard a personal injury case is being dealt with by the defendant’s insurance, Judge Flann Brennan put back the case to the 19th of June so a probation report could be prepared.
