A man who drove while disqualified has been admonished on a technicality at Dundee Sheriff Court.
The court heard Philip Sinclair, 39, of Invercraig Place, Dundee, was “unaware” he was disqualified at the time he committed the offence.
Sinclair admitted driving a car while disqualified at A92, Taybridge roundabout, Newport, on October 8. He later crashed the car.
At the time he was subject to an interim disqualification, having admitted drink driving at Dundee Sheriff Court but not having been sentenced.
Sinclair said he was unaware an interim disqualification had been issued and the Crown accepted this position. Sheriff Anderson admonished Sinclair on the driving while disqualified charge.
At the time, Sinclair said he went into survival mode following the crash.
He told the Tele said: “There was blood gushing from my head. I really thought I was going to die.”
