A drink-driver was almost four times the limit when he crashed his van into a roundabout in Dunfermline.

Alan Healy, 25, of Boyle Drive, Rosyth, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court for sentencing.

He admitted that on March 18 on B980 at a roundabout at Pitreavie Way and Carnegie Avenue and on Queensferry Road, he drove a van at excessive speeds, swerved between lanes, braked harshly, weaved between traffic, overtook a vehicle in the inside lane and collided with a roundabout.

He also drove having consumed excess alcohol. His reading was 87 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, the legal limit being 22 microgrammes.

Depute fiscal Andrew Brown said several witnesses saw Healey driving the Ford Transit Connect van erratically at excess speed towards Dunfermline.

A woman walking her dog her a loud bang shortly seeing the van speed past her and saw that it had crashed into a roundabout.

Defence solicitor Alexander Flett said: “He doesn’t have a great recollection of it and doesn’t know why he got into the vehicle. He’s very apologetic.”

Sheriff Susan Duff warned Healy he was coming close to a custodial sentence for his driving offences.

She imposed a community payback order with 200 hours of unpaid work and a six-month restriction of liberty order.

Healy was also banned from driving for three years and will to re-sit his driving test.
