TWO parked cars were struck by a careless driver so hard they became stuck together, a court heard.

Defendant Stacy Marie Jones, 37, admitted careless driving after she ploughing into a Toyota and a Peugeot parked in Holywell on November 6.

Jones, from Dreflan, Mold, admitted leaving the scene of the accident and that she was driving her Astra, just after midnight, without insurance.

Prosecutor Justin Espie, told Flintshire Magistrates’ Court: “Police got a call from a member of the public that they had heard a collision between two cars and the car had driven away.”

Mr Espie said Jones’ Astra had struck the Toyota with such force it had pushed it backwards into the Peugeot and became embedded.

Members of the public heard the Astra revving hard to extricate itself from the vehicle it had hit.

“Significant damage was caused and the officers seized a section of fender from the defendant’s vehicle,” said Mr Espie.

Police toured the area looking for a damaged car until they spotted the Astra and traced the driver.

When contacted in writing by police Jones had initially said she had sold the vehicle on.

Mr Espie told magistrates it appeared Jones had sought to deliberately evade responsibility for the accident.

Jones, unemployed, said: “I wish to apologise to the victims.”

Mr Espie said Toyota owner Ceri Phillips had to pay for repairs and damages, plus an increase in insurance premiums, all of which had cost £475. Peugeot owner Trevor Roberts had similarly faced a bill of £308.

Magistrates told Jones she had shown “a serious lack of judgement” and had tried to evade her responsibility.

They imposed fines and costs totalling £475 and disqualified her from driving for six months.
