A pensioner who caused a five-car pile-up, leaving a woman with serious injuries, when she hit the wrong pedal has been handed a two-year driving ban.

Having heard that 84-year-old Irma Wright surrendered her licence in the aftermath of the accident, District Judge Liam McNally said it was “unfortunate that at the end of your driving career, someone was hurt as badly as this lady was”.
