Woman dies whilst helping son after being hit by drunk driver

Emerson Vella was found guilty of  negligent and imprudent driving. The incident took place in Dun Karm Street, Birkirkara, in a case which Magistrate Joseph Mifsud described as unfortunate, the Court heard that a breathalyser test done on the accused had shown that the accused had consumed more alcohol than that permitted by law.

The event took place on 9 March 2015 at around 1.30am, when the vehicle driven by Vella crashed into another vehicle which was parked. On impact, Fenech who was close to the vehicle, ended up on the floor. Investigations revealed that Catherine Fenech had gone to assist her son Ishmael, whose car had just stopped in the same road because of the rain.

Fenech was taken to hospital for treatment and was in danger of losing her life. She eventually died two years later due to the injuries she sustained during the incident.

Emerson Vella was taken to the Msida police station where he consented to a breathalyser test, where he tested positive for alcohol.

His license was disqualified for one year and he was ordered to pay a fine of € 3,000 plus court expenses.
