A DRIVER has been fined after he hit a pedestrian with his car near McDonald's in Kidderminster, causing the victim serious injuries.

Scott Bower, of Walter Nash Road West, Kidderminster, admitted driving without due care and attention when he appeared at Kidderminster Magistrates' Court on Friday, November 8.

The 24-year-old previously denied the charge.

Magistrates heard how Bower hit a pedestrian in his Landrover Discovery while navigating the car park at McDonald's in Worcester Road on February 3 this year.

The victim, a man, sustained serious injuries, namely fractures to his right thigh and right leg and various facial fractures.

The court heard how conditions at the time of the collision were dry and, although it was dark at the time, the car park was well-lit by lighting in the restaurant.

Bower was fined £220 and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £30 plus £60 in court costs.

He received five points on his driving licence.
