A takeaway delivery driver crashed his new sports car into another vehicle and a wall after losing control at a junction.
John Devoy was turning into Peterhead’s Station Road in his Toyota Supra when he crashed into the car and a wall.
The 29-year-old had recently bought the vehicle when the accident happened on on June 18 last year.
Yesterday, he admitted driving carelessly by causing the wheels of his car to spin, crossing onto the opposing carriageway and colliding with a car and wall.
Depute Fiscal Ruaridh McAlister told the court it was around 1pm when Devoy was trying to negotiate a junction when he suddenly lost control.
He said: “The accused was driving at speed and verged onto the opposing carriageway.
“His back tyres clipped the kerb and he collided with another car and a garden wall.
“The police were contacted and they spoke to the accused. He told them he did not have a lot of experience driving the vehicle.”
Defence agent Sam Milligan said Devoy knew the owner of the other vehicle involved and any damage to that and the wall has since been rectified through his insurance policy.
Mr Milligan said it happened as a result of “too much” acceleration and his client had “recently obtained” the Toyota Supra.
He added Devoy was delivery driver for a local takeaway and he needed his driving licence as part of his job.
Sheriff Robert Macdonald told Devoy, of George Road, Peterhead, he should have been more cautious after getting behind the wheel of his recent purchase.
He added six penalty points to his licence and fined him £480.
