Carlisle man admits causing serious injury to passenger by dangerous driving

Carlisle Crown Court

[A] MAN was told he could receive a prison sentence after admitting that his dangerous driving caused a passenger serious injury.

Kyle Mark Robinson, 22, admitted a total of six offences when he appeared at Carlisle Crown Court earlier today (MON).

Robinson admitted causing serious injury to Ben Robinson – said to have been a front seat passenger but not a relative – by driving a Ford Mondeo dangerously at Dalston. He also pleaded guilty to the aggravated taking of that vehicle – from Longtown – without consent of the owner, when £4,000 damage is said to have been caused.

In addition, Kyle Robinson admitted causing £200 damage to the skylight of a VW van; failing to stop after an accident; having no third party insurance; and driving while unfit through drugs. All six crimes were committed on November 7.

Recorder Julie Clemitson adjourned the case and was told up-to-date medical evidence would be sought by the prosecution in respect of the crash victim who, the court heard, had been “undergoing various therapies and treatments”.

A probation service background report was also requested on Kyle Robinson, of Hallin Crescent, Carlisle.

He was granted unconditional bail by Recorder Clemitson, and is due to receive his sentence for all matters at the crown court on August 3.

“You must prepare yourself for all possibilities, including custody,” Recorder Clemitson told him.
