Crash Teenagers Curfew

TWO STRANRAER teenagers involved in a crash that killed a friend have been banned from leaving their home at night for nine months.

Iain Walker (19), of Clifton Terrace, London Road, took his father's car without consent. And Callum McCrindle (18), Elm Court, was driving it when it rolled over on a corner on an Ayrshire road, trapping 18-year-old Kevin Duncan underneath when it hit a tree. Mr Duncan died later in hospital in Ayr.

McCrindle, who was Mr Duncan's best friend, was placed on probation for two years, ordered to carry out 200 hours of community service and pay £1000 compensation for the loss of the car.

He was also ordered to be electronically tagged, restricting his movements at night, banned from driving for a year and given nine penalty points.

He admitted at the High Court in Kilmarnock last week that he drove the car without due care and attention, without the consent of the owner, without a full driving licence and with no insurance.

He had originally been charged with causing death by dangerous driving.

Walker, who admitted taking his father's car without consent, was also given two years' probation, tagged for nine months, ordered to carry out 200 hours community service and to pay £1000 compensation and banned from driving for a year.
