Hit and run driver arrested without bail

Kenneth Cassar, 38, from Senglea was charged with dangerous driving and of hitting three vehicles in a hit and run that occurred the early hours of this morning, between Saturday and Sunday.

Cassar was also accused of not stopping when requested to do so by police, and of refusing to give his own personal details and that of the vehicle he was driving. The accused, who is a recidivist, pleaded not guilty.

Although defence lawyer Dr Mario Mifsud made no request bail, he asked the Court that the accused be sent to the Forensic Section of Mount Carmel. Dr Mifsud said that every time his client was imprisoned, he ended up with a depression.

The court, presided over by Magistrate Marseanne Farrugia, asked the Director of Correctional Corradino to ensure that psychological tests were carried out, to determine whether the accused should be sent to Mount Carmel or stay in prison.
