A van driver made a quick exit after smashing into a parked car at a Rosyth store causing £5000 worth of damage.

The offender was 26-year-old Scott Jaconelli, of Colliston Road, Dunfermline.

He admitted that on December 21, 2020, at the Tesco store, Queensferry Road, Rosyth, he was the driver of a van and failed to stop after colliding with a parked car, causing extensive damage to it.

Depute fiscal Azrah Yousaf told Dunfermline Sheriff Court that Jaconelli had driven into the car park and gone into the store.

He then left the supermarket and was driving out when he struck a parked vehicle.

She went on: “The car was hit with such force that it left the ground.

“The owner came out and saw the damage to their car. The police were contacted.”

She added the vehicle driven by Jaconelli was a works van and the company was based in Motherwell. It took four months for the police to track down Jaconelli and speak to him.

Jaconelli, who was representing himself in court, offered no explanation for the incident.

He said: “I was working for Amazon at the time and so was insured.”

Sheriff Lindsay Foulis banned Jaconelli from driving for six months and fined him £790.
