A man has been sentenced after police received a report of a car driving carelessly in Colchester last year.
Adakata Moses was driving a grey SAAB on Brinkley Road in December when he drove through a red light at a pedestrian crossing.
He overtook a stationary car waiting at the red light and narrowly avoided hitting another one head on, which was waiting on the opposite side of the road.
A child pedestrian was also crossing the road at the time.
Moses was sentenced at Southend Magistrates’ Court last month for careless driving.
