Driver of car in crash that killed three people has ‘a case to meet’

first_imgThe driver of a car involved in a crash that claimed three young lives has ‘a case to answer’ on a number of offences relating to the smash, a Judge has found.Sean Ward faces charges of driving without a licence, failing to produce insurance, failing to produce a driving licence and driving with no insurance on July 28, 2016. Theresa Robinson (20), Kaylem Ó Murachaidh (19) and Steven McGrath-McCafferty (19) all lost their lives in the accident at Corravady, around five miles from Letterkenny.Relatives of the three victims were in court as lengthy evidence was heard to determine whether it was ‘beyond reasonable doubt’ that Ward was the driver of the Toyota Avensis car involved in the fatal crash.Mr Ward was also seriously injured in the crash.Solicitor for Sean Ward, Mr Kieran O’Gorman stressed that his client was before the court on a summons of driving a vehicle with no insurance on a certain date.“My client is not on trial for anything other than driving a vehicle at a place on a date,” Mr O’Gorman said.“This young man was very seriously injured, had bleeding on the brain, two broken legs, spent two weeks in intensive care, three weeks in hospital and is still suffering.“He has no memory whatsoever of this accident – nothing before, during or after.”Garda Kilcoyne said he was on duty on Thursday morning, July 28, 2016, when he received a report of a road traffic collision between Drumkeen and Letterkenny.When he arrived at the scene, he observed a vehicle parked on the left-hand side of the road.He said he was met by a man, Hugh Sweeney, who said he had called the emergencyGarda Kilcoyne found a young female, ‘lying half on the road and half in the passenger side of the car’. He found no pulse on the woman.Garda Kilcoyne proceeded towards a small hatchback car, lying in the ditch. He observed a young male lying across the inside of the vehicle. He found no pulse on the man.Garda Kilcoyne said he found a second young male lying alongside the rear driver side wheel of the car. Again, he found no pulse.Garda Kilcoyne had found Sean Ward, of Hilltop, Stranorlar, at the back of the Toyota, ‘crawling on the road’.The Garda told the Court that Sean Ward had said when questioned at the scene: ‘I’m going down the road. I’ve no licence. I’ve no nothing. I was driving. Is Teresa okay? I’m going down the road’.Mr O’Gorman said his client would not have ‘understood what the caution was’, however Garda Kilcoyne said the man was able to give his address and date of birth.Divisional scenes of crime officer Garda John Madigan gave evidence said he recovered what he described as ‘exhibits of forensic importance’ from the Toyota, among them the airbag from the driver’s side of the car.In September 2016, Garda Madigan attended a secure storage area and removed the front passenger airbag from the Toyota.The airbags were sent for forensic examination.John Hoad, from Forensic Science Ireland, confirmed the DNA profile from areas of a light bloodstain on the driver’s airbag matched that of Sean Ward.A bloodstain on the passenger airbag was generated from a female source.“The conclusion was that the blood findings were what you would expect to find if Sean Ward was driving and a female was in the front passenger seat.Ambulance driver John Ward said he spoke to Sean Ward, who he said was ‘coherent and adamant that he didn’t want me to go near him’.He said: “He (Sean Ward) was adamant that he was getting no injections and he was coherent at the time. He told me his name, his date of birth and his address’.Hugh Sweeney was taking bales of silage from Fintown on his lorry on the night in question and came upon the accident.Mr Sweeney said that Sean Ward had told him that he was not driving the car.Mr O’Gorman said his client had an ‘open wound that was bleeding continuously and needed 19 stitches.’Mr O’Gorman said: ‘He has no memory of this terrible drama. It is a probability and a possibility, but it is not certain beyond reasonable doubt’.Sean Ward was arrested for dangerous driving causing death on October 24, 2016.Garda Kilcoyne said he was aware that Detective Garda Sullivan had made a demand of Sean Ward on August 2, 2016 to produce a driving licence and certificate of insurance within ten days and neither were submitted.Inspector Michael Harrison argued that Sean Ward had made ‘an honest admission not under duress or stress’ and that this should be prima facie evidence.“I believe beyond reasonable doubt that Sean Ward was the driver of the vehicle,” Inspector Harrison said.Sean Ward, who has three previous convictions, has never had a driving licence, the Court heard.“There is no way that blame can be attributed to anyone,” Mr O’Gorman said.“He is suffering and will suffer for the rest of his life as a result of the horrendous injuries he received. He has brain and physical injuries that he will carry for the rest of his life.“This does not in any way throw blame on any party with what happened on the night.”Judge Kelly said he had no evidence bar observations to suggest that Sean Ward was incoherent or disorientated.“I have to conclude that the admission is prima-face evidence that he was the driver of the vehicle,” Judge Kelly said.“That is reinforced by DNA evidence. There are possible alternative explanations, but there is also the explanation that Mr Ward was the driver, the airbag came out and that is how the blood went on it. In my view, Mr Ward has a case to meet.”The case was adjourned until May 2. Judge Kelly asked that a probation report and a community service report be prepared for that date.Driver of car in crash that killed three people has ‘a case to meet’ was last modified: February 27th, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CorravadyJudge Paul KellyKaylem Ó MurachaidhKIeran O’GormanletterkennyLetterkenny District Courtsean wardSteven McCaffertySteven McGrath-McCaffertyTeresa Robinsonlast_img read more

Man Utd team news & likely line-up

first_imgManchester United warmed up for Sunday’s first Manchester derby of the season in dramatic style on Wednesday, netting twice in the final five minutes to beat Juventus in the Champions League in Turin.But after securing two come-from-behind victories in four days, Jose Mourinho and his men will know that they face their toughest test of the week when visiting Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.This was always billed as a huge eight days for the Red Devils, and were they to make the trip back to the west of the city with a positive result then it will be the latest shot in the arm after their wins against Bournemouth and Juve. Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! United, of course, also performed a stunning comeback in this fixture last season, overturning a 2-0 half-time deficit to win 3-2 and delay City’s Premier League title celebrations by eight days, but Mourinho will be adamant that they cannot afford to start so badly again this time.Man Utd Injuries Romelu Lukaku is the biggest name of the potential absentees, with his tendon issue having already ruled him out of the trips to Bournemouth and Juventus over the past week.Antonio Valencia didn’t make the trip to Italy despite having returned to full training, while Diogo Dalot and Phil Jones are among those who have not featured recently due to knocks.Marcos Rojo was back in the matchday 18 against Everton a fortnight ago after undergoing post-World Cup surgery but has not featured since.Romelu Lukaku Man Utd 2018Man Utd Suspensions United have no suspension worries. Luke Shaw is just one booking away from a mandatory one-match ban having already received four yellow cards this season.Man Utd Starting Line-UpHaving seen his side hang tough long enough in Turin on Wednesday to give themselves the chance to win late on, Mourinho is unlikely to make too many changes in his side’s last game before the international break.The largely-isolated Alexis Sanchez ought to start at the front of the attack again, with only Jesse Lingard’s place in the front three open to question, while in midfield it is to be expected that Ander Herrera will get the nod once more. However, Marouane Fellaini could be asked to play from the off if the manager decides his men need a greater physical presence from minute one. Such an approach would depend on how the Belgian recovers from his first piece of match action against Juventus following the injury he suffered on duty with his national team in October.At the back there could be a start for Antonio Valencia, although Ashley Young arguably has done enough to get the call.Man Utd possible XIMan City Team News Nobody needs reminding just how well Manchester City have gone since United last faced them, with that 100-point return last season being followed by a near-faultless start to 2018-19 thus far.Pep Guardiola does have one major injury absentee though in the shape of Kevin De Bruyne, whose knee injury will see him miss out for another month or so. It has been a very stop-start campaign for the Belgian midfielder due to health issues, but City remain unbeaten in the league without him and have eased themselves to within a point of qualification for the last 16 in Europe too.The form of City’s front men gives Guardiola plenty of options, with Gabriel Jesus’ hat-trick in midweek adding to the fine returns of Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling, who have 10 and seven goals respectively in all competitions. And as if that wasn’t enough, David Silva, Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez have added 17 between them.TV Channel & Kick-off time The match at Eastlands kicks off at 4:30pm GMT on Sunday, with live coverage available in the UK on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event from 4:15pm following the conclusion of Chelsea v Everton. In the U.S. the game will be shown on NBCSN at 11:30am ET.Best Opta Match facts Manchester City have won just two of their last eight matches against Manchester United in all competitions (D2 L4) since winning four in a row between 2013 and 2014. Premier League meetings between Manchester City and Manchester United have been won by the away side on 17 occasions – only Aston Villa vs Liverpool (19) and Everton vs Man Utd (18) have been won by the visiting team more. There have been just three occasions of a team scoring 24+ goals after six home games in a Premier League season, with Man City responsible for all three (2013-14, 2017-18 and 2018-19). Manchester United have conceded 18 goals in their 11 Premier League games this season. It took them 25 games until the 31st January to concede as many in the competition last season. Manchester City haven’t lost any of their last 53 Premier League games against sides starting the day outside the top four (W44 D9 L0), since a 0-4 loss at Everton in January 2017. Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling is still yet to score against Manchester United in the Premier League, attempting 19 shots in 12 games without success; among players with at least 50 Premier League goals, only Robbie Keane (22) has played more times against the Red Devils without scoring than Sterling. Anthony Martial has scored in each of his last four Premier League games for Man Utd – he could become the seventh different player to score in five or more in a row for the club in the competition (Ruud van Nistelrooy x4, Wayne Rooney x2, Eric Cantona, Dwight Yorke, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robin van Persie). This will be the 22nd meeting between Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho in all competitions – the Spaniard has won nine and lost five (D7) of the previous 21. He’s only lost more matches against Jurgen Klopp (7) than Mourinho (5) during his managerial career. Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has never lost consecutive home league games against a single opponent in his whole managerial career.

V Foundation Announces Research Grants To Be Awarded Through Robin Roberts Cancer

first_imgThe V Foundation for Cancer Research, a top-rated cancer research charity, is excited to announce that Bristol-Myers Squibb Company has provided a $2.5 million donation to the V Foundation for cancer survivorship research.The grant will be used by the V Foundation to fund biomedical cancer research through its Robin Roberts Fund for Cancer Survivorship. Through this fund, the V Foundation has committed to improving the long-term health and wellness of oncology patients after treatment. Announced in December 2017, the Robin Roberts Cancer Survivorship Fund was named in honor of Robin Roberts, a member of the V Foundation’s Board of Directors and co-anchor of ABC’s “Good Morning America.” The grant was announced last night at the ESPYs on the red carpet by Susan Braun, Chief Executive Officer of the V Foundation.“Just as Jim Valvano would have wanted, we have made amazing strides in cancer research – the wonderful science funded by the V Foundation is helping to create millions of survivors,” said Robin Roberts. “But for those survivors, it is a long journey and our health will always be at the forefront of our minds. As the number of survivors grow, it’s time to take a look at how the rest of our lives will be lived. We want to give every survivor the best chance at a long, full, happy and healthy life. I’m so pleased to be a part of this new initiative.”As research has led to improvements in treatments, there are more cancer survivors than ever. Today, there are more than 16 million U.S. cancer survivors and this number is expected to grow to 20 million by 2026. Survivors face chronic health conditions, cancer recurrence and more life-altering circumstances. The Robin Roberts Cancer Survivorship Fund will focus on biomedical cancer research areas with particular relevance to survivors including pediatrics, immuno-oncology and data science research focused on improving survivors’ outcomes.“Research to better understand how to improve the health and extend the lives of cancer survivors is critical to fully eradicating cancer,” said Braun. “The V Foundation is embarking on this new initiative to expand the ways that we can change the face of cancer forever.”Roberts has been a longtime friend and supporter of the V Foundation and was a colleague of Jim Valvano’s at ESPN, prior to joining “Good Morning America.” In 2007, Roberts was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her ensuing battle has been recognized with honors and awards by various organizations throughout the country. She inspired so many as she bravely shared her personal battle with the rare blood disorder myelodysplastic syndrome, or MDS, shortly after breast cancer. Roberts speaks openly about the importance of early detection, increasing treatment options available and support. She is an inspiration and role model for those battling cancer, as well as survivors facing continued challenges. Roberts announced the formation of the Robin Roberts Cancer Survivorship Fund on December 4, 2017 at a party in her honor at Blue Smoke in New York.The V Foundation has proudly awarded more than $200 million for cutting-edge cancer research. The V Foundation holds a 4-star (highest) rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest evaluator of charities, and is among the top 4% of cancer charities of all charities evaluated. The V Foundation is a GuideStar platinum-rated charity.For more information about the V Foundation, please click here.

Amazon Echo Dot Kids Edition promises an ageappropriate Alexa

first_imgAmazon has a new Alexa speaker, the Echo Dot Kids Edition. Amazon Amazon updated its Echo Dot speaker back in 2018, so it’s no surprise that the tech company decided to revamp its original Echo Dot Kids Edition with a next-gen device as well. At a glance, Amazon clearly drew inspiration from the third-generation Echo Dot, which has a more rounded shape, complete with mesh fabric and a few color options. The new Echo Dot Kids Edition costs $70 (Amazon says it will be on sale for $50 for “a limited time”) and comes in rainbow (pictured above) and “frost blue” color finishes. See it at AmazonNote that CNET may get a share of the revenue if you buy anything featured on our site.Amazon says the new Echo Dot Kids Edition is “70% louder” than the first-gen version and includes a year of FreeTime Unlimited.

Amazon has recently come under fire following reports that the company holds on to transcripts of your Alexa conversations, even after you’ve deleted the audio clip. Amazon has since introduced new features, such as the  “Alexa, delete everything I said today” command. Child advocacy groups also have issues with the first-generation Echo Dot Kids Edition, according to a report in May claiming that the speaker violates privacy laws, prompting a request for an investigation by the Federal Trade Commission. Amazon recently introduced the Echo Show 5 as well, which is scheduled for a June 26 release. The Echo Show 5 is a smaller smart display with a 5.5-inch screen and a built-in privacy screen.
