AN 18-YEAR-OLD has been in court after a crash outside a garage in Fishguard.

Owain James, of Cenarth, was accused of driving without due care and attention relating to an incident on April 22.

The driver of a Ford Fiesta was travelling along the A487 towards Fishguard. As they were passing Penydre Garage, the defendant was approaching in the opposite direction in a Peugeot 207.

James decided to turn right towards the garage forecourt, but turned directly in to the path of the Ford Fiesta.
