A Meath man has admitted careless driving causing the death of a 14 year old boy two years ago.
Ruadhan Tracey, with a former address at Dunshaughlin, Co Meath pleaded guilty to driving without due care and attention causing the death of Conor Hickey at Fassaugh Road, Cabra in December, two years ago.
He is currently serving an 8 year jail term for a string of offences including stabbing a shop worker with a syringe, leaving him in need of 24-hour care.
His crimes followed a pattern in that he would enter a shop, threaten to give staff “the virus” and then flee with money from the register.
But this is a very different case. The father of one has admitted careless driving causing the death of 14 year old Conor Hickey.
The teenager from Cabra was on his way to visit a friend when he was struck by a car on the evening of December 2nd 2011.
He died in hospital the following day.
The prosecution has asked that Ruadhan Tracey’s sentencing be adjourned until after the anniversary of the boy’s death. It’ll take place next March.
