A 75-YEAR-old motorist was fined £200 and lost his unblemished driving record after pulling from a junction into the path of another vehicle.

Ray Dudly Willingale, of Linden Cottage, Maunby, Thirsk, admitted careless driving when he appeared before Richmond magistrates yesterday. The court heard that his van had emerged from a side-road near Scotton, Catterick Garrison, causing a collision with another vehicle. The driver of the other car, Diane Brown, suffered a bruised chest, legs and neck in the accident on October 23. Willingale was fined £200, with £55 costs, and had his licence endorsed with six penalty points.
