Union Mills man banned from driving for six years

A Union Mills man who seriously injured a teenaged biker has been jailed for three years.

Ryan Kneen, of Close-y-Lhergy, has also been disqualified from driving for six years after which he must retake his test. 

Kneen, 26, was charged with a string of motoring offences including causing serious bodily harm to the 16-year-old  by driving dangerously on the Ballahutchin Straight in April.

He was also accused of drink driving, failing to stop after a collision, driving whilst disqualified without insurance,  and of taking a vehicle without the owner's consent.

The family of the teenager are thanking all those who stopped to help at the time.
