A WALLYFORD teenager who caused a road crash in Musselburgh has been banned from driving after it was found he had no licence.

Ben Vanhegan, of Scarlett Park, drove a vehicle through a red light, lost control and crashed into a moving car and two stationary cars in Musselburgh earlier this year.

Vanhegan caused damage to all the vehicles involved in the incident, which took place at the town’s Edinburgh Road and North High Street.

Following the smash, which took place on July 31, the teenager was found to have no driving licence and no valid insurance for the vehicle.

The 18-year-old then behaved in a threatening or abusive manner at Ladywell Way, Musselburgh.

He appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last month, where he admitted four offences, and returned last Tuesday for sentencing.

Sheriff Adrian Cottam banned the teenager from the road for 12 months and also placed him on an offenders’ supervision order for the same period.

The sheriff also told Vanhegan he must carry out 160 hours of unpaid work as punishment for the offences.
