Car-shunt driver fined

A MAN who was involved in a five-car shunt near Pickering has been fined for driving without due care and attention.

Craig Fox, 29, of Rotheram, had admitted the charge during a previous hearing at Scarborough Magistrates’ Court.

The incident happened on the A169 on April 27 and involved a queue of five cars, the first of which was pulling in.

Fox was in the fifth car back and collided with the vehicle in front. He was fined £250, given six penalty points and ordered to pay £45 costs.
