Limavady man granted bail

Thursday, 22 March 2018

A 19-year-old man from Limavady, charged with drink-driving a vehicle which crashed on the outskirts of Derry leaving a young woman in a 'semi-vegetative state' has been granted bail. Conor McSorley, of Roe Mill Walk in Limavady, appeared in court charged with 13 offences arising from a road traffic accident (RTA) on December 20.
Those include driving with excess alcohol, possession of cannabis, using a vehicle without insurance or a licence, driving with excess speed, causing grievous bodily harm by driving carelessly, driving without due care and attention, and failing to remain at the scene of an accident.
Around 9.45pm on December 20, there was a report of an RTA on the Clooney Road, Limavady bound. As a result, a car ended up in a 'nearside field' and a female, who was the front seat passenger, had to be transported to hospital with 'very serious injuries'.
It emerged during a bail application on March 12 that the young woman has been left in a 'semi-vegetative state'.
