A young Cloghan man who caused serious injuries to a young couple after crashing into them while under the influence of alcohol has appeared in court.
John Furey, aged 34, was involved in the two car smash at Cappry, Ballybofey on January 16th this year.
Letterkenny District Court heard how Furey was driving a BMW 520 which collided head-on with a family in a Mercedes car coming in the opposite direction.
Two other people in the car suffered suffered serious injuries including a man who suffered a fractured ankle while his wife had both her legs and one wrist broken.
There was also children in the car but no details were given in court on their condition.
Garda Sergeant Sean McDaid told the court that Furey of Ballinamore, Cloghan was arrested at the scene and later gave a blood sample.
It showed a reading of 109 milligrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood which was over the limit.
He later admitted to Gardai that he had been drinking the previous night and he had driven too fast into the corner just before the accident happened.
Sergeant McDaid said that a demand was also made for his certificate of his license and his insurance but that these documents were not produced.
Judge Eiteain Cunningham said she noted that there was a plea in the case and also that Furey had no previous convictions.
She ordered that Furey undergo the Pro-Social Driving Course and adjourned the case until February 2nd for sentencing.
