Uninsured driver in Pomeroy spots police and crashes

AN uninsured driver who spotted police on a road near Pomeroy, panicked and crashed into a hedge on Tuesday evening.
The police, who published a photo of the damaged vehicle on social media, said the motorist was facing a hefty repair bill as well as the fine and penalty points.
“Driver of this very tidy Bora saw us in Pomeroy, took the head staggers and promptly drove into the hedge,” the post from PSNI Cookstown  read.
“Turns out he was uninsured and panicked. So along with the £200 for no insurance, the £150 for recovery, the £20 a day storage, the £5 offender levy and the six points on the licence, he’s also out the price of recovery from the recovery yard (that car isn’t driving any time soon) a new sump, sump guard, the front bumper and a clatter of other parts.”
