A MOTORIST has had his driving licence endorsed with eight penalty points after being convicted of careless driving following an accident in Fowey.
Michael Jaanus, aged 31, of Halbullock View, Truro, was also fined £160 with £60 costs and a £20 surcharge at a hearing in his absence at Bodmin Magistrates' Court last Wednesday.
Jaanus was driving a van down Passage Lane on February 14 when he failed to negotiate a left-hand bend.
The wheels locked and the van skidded into a vehicle coming in the opposite direction.
