March 23, 2018

A man has been ordered to return from England to face sentencing after damaging two cars and injuring a woman during an alleged drink-driving spree.

Kyle Boyle struck two cars, injuring a woman before hitting a stone wall in Dunfanaghy, Co Donegal on January 15th, 2017.

Letterkenny District Court heard how Boyle had been driving at speed through Portnablagh before losing control and then striking the two cars and eventually crashing.

Boyle tried to phone friends but Gardai arrived and arrested him at the scene.

“He made a number of calls to friends to try and help him get away from the scene but was not successful,” said Garda Inspector Barry Doyle.

Boyle, of Eden More, Dunafanaghy, had no insurance and failed to give either a breath, blood or urine sample to Gardai.

Solicitor Patsy Gallagher said his client was in England working but accepted the charges and wanted to put them behind him.

Judge Paul Kelly adjourned the case to sentence Boyle on April 18th next.
