Vehicle Accident In Somerset


Have you been the victim of a vehicle accident in Somerset caused by a drunk driver?

The county of Somerset is situated in England and it is the location of a recent incident where a vehicle hit a woman in Yeovil town centre on Market Street and she sustained serious injuries that required treatment at the local hospital. Police attended the scene of the vehicle accident in Somerset and a short time later they found the vehicle that had hit the woman and the person that the vehicle was registered under, who they suspected had been driving when accident happened.

The suspect, Samual Clarke, refused to take a breath test after claiming that he had no involvement in the vehicle accident in Somerset, and refused to answer any questions when he was later interviewed. At Clarke’s court appearance, he was sentenced to a driving ban of twelve months and said that he regretted not complying with the police’s original requests for a breath test. He pleaded guilty to the charge of failing to provide a specimen of breath for analysis on the date of the accident on April 26. Clarke also admitted that he not given information about who was driving his registered vehicle at the time as well.

The police prosecutor recounted their version of events to the Magistrates Court and said that the police officer, who found Clarke after the search for the vehicle, involved in the accident had suspected that he had consumed a significant amount of alcohol. After he refused to provide specimens for a breath test, he was arrested. Later at the police station, Clarke was asked to provide the name of the driver of the vehicle in a form, but did not fill that section in.

Clarke maintains that he did not provide a breath test as he had no involvement in the accident and that he did not state who the driver was in the form, as he felt that the form was asking him to admit that he had committed the offence. The court fined Mr Clarke for costs and a small victim surcharge in addition to his year long driving ban.
