An Inishowen man has pleaded guilty to careless driving causing death.
Evan Quinn, from Buncrana, appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court.
Quinn, of Meenagorey, had originally faced a charge of dangerous driving causing the death of Martin Strain at Tooban, Burnfoot, on August 23rd, 2015.
However, the indictment was amended at Wednesday’s sitting of the Circuit Court where a jury had just been about to be sworn in.
The accused is also charged with careless driving causing serious bodily harm on the same date.
Judge John Aylmer agreed to recommend the preparation of a Probation Report and adjourned the case for sentencing until the April session of the Circuit Court.
