He was freed on bail to appear back in court in April

Northway-Central Way Craigavon

A Portadown man who is accused of causing grievous bodily injury to another through careless driving will face Crown Court proceedings next month.

The 54-year-old appeared at Craigavon Magistrates’ Court for the purposes of a preliminary enquiry (PE), the legal process during which a case is referred to the higher court.

Kenneth Herron, of Drumcree Grove, faces a single charge of causing grievous bodily injury by careless driving.

As the charges were read, it was heard that the offence was alleged to have been committed back on July 5, of last year, in the vicinity of Central Way, Craigavon.

Appearing in his solicitor’s office, Herron made no objection to the holding of a preliminary enquiry.

Prosecution submitted that based on the papers before the court there was a prima facie case to answer.

Defence solicitor John McAtamney made no contrary submissions.

Deputy District Judge Greg McCourt  , satisfied there was a prima facie case to answer, released the defendant on his own bail of £500 to appear at Craigavon Crown Court on April 5.
