Last updated at 17:41, Wednesday, 16 April 2014
A SWEDISH motorist admitted his lack of attention led to a crash which injured a cyclist.
Anders Ljunberg’s case was heard in Furness Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
The 48-year-old, of Marina Courts, Michaelson Road, Barrow, did not appear, having written a letter admitting to driving his Fiat Punto without due care and attention.
Mrs Lisa Hine, prosecuting, said he pulled out on the roundabout at Jubilee Bridge, resulting in a collision which caused minor injuries to the cyclist.
In his letter, Ljunberg said he had not seen anybody and said it was dark, wet and difficult to see.
He must pay a £200 fine, £85 costs and a £20 victim surcharge.
