Repeat offender Wilfred Dauvois has appeared in court accused of driving while disqualified, after allegedly crashing a rental car on Nikao main road at the weekend.

 

Dauvois, who is already disqualified from driving for three years, is said by police to have been at the wheel, injuring MP Albert Nicholas who was in the passenger seat.

The two men were lucky to escape without more serious injuries after the car hit a power pole then careened across the road and ploughed 10 metres into the adjoining field.

Dauvois has been order to return to Court tomorrow. According to police the silver Toyota, travelling at speed, flattened the pole.

Last year, Dauvois was convicted and sentenced to three years disqualification from driving after crashing a car in Tupapa in August. He was said to have had an epileptic seizure behind the wheel, and crashed into a number of vehicles.

Earlier the same year, he had a seizure and crashed into an ironwood tree.

Judge Judith Potter said Dauvois was an absolute menace on the road.

He is also before the court for two other charges of driving while disqualified and dangerous driving.
