Teen admits driving into front of house with pregnant ex

He’ll be sentenced this month

A teenager today admitted driving a car into the front of a house causing serious injury to his female passenger.

The boy, who was 17 at the time, pleaded guilty at Lincoln Crown Court to a charge of causing serious injury by dangerous driving as a result of the incident on December 23 2017.

The boy was charged after the car he was driving crashed into the front of a house on Meadow Lane, North Hykeham, leaving him and his teenage passenger, who was said to have been eight weeks pregnant and his former girlfriend, trapped inside.

Neither the boy or the girl can be identified due to court orders.

Emergency services were called to the scene and the boy was arrested.

He originally faced a charge of attempted murder which he denied. At today’s hearing Sarah Gaunt, prosecuting, said that the boy’s plea to the new charge was acceptable to the prosecution.

Judge John Pini QC adjourned sentence for the preparation of a pre-sentence report and the boy was granted conditional bail to appear back before the Crown Court for sentence on July 26.
