A Welwyn Garden City driver has been fined £200 after a crash left a motorcyclist seriously injured.

Yakub Miah, of New Wood, admitted driving without due care and attention when he appeared at Stevenage Magistrates’ Court on July 30.

The court heard how Miah had been driving a Toyota Avensis when he was travelling out of Woodhall Lane onto A1000 Chequers in Welwyn Garden City, contravening the give way sign on November 10.

The motorcyclist had been riding south along Chequers from the direction of the roundabout at the time of the crash.

The scene of the collision is located a short distance from the roundabout at the junction of Broadwater Road.

The motorcyclist, who had been riding an Aprilia Habana motorcycle, suffered hip, shoulder and shinbone fractures.

The Toyota suffered damage to the front.

On top of the fine, Miah, 48, was ordered to pay victim services £30 and £85 court costs.

His driving record was endorsed with six points.
