A motorist who knocked down a pensioner before driving off has been fined.
James Glennie, 67, was found guilty of colliding with Ronald Hughes as he crossed Hill Street in February last year.
Mr Hughes told Dundee Sheriff Court that he “went down like a ton of bricks” and watched as Glennie looked at him from his driver’s window before leaving the scene.
The court was shown CCTV footage of Glennie’s car turning on to the street at 12.45pm on the day in question, with Mr Hughes lying on the ground.
Giving evidence, Mr Hughes said: “This car came up, done its job and the driver looked down at me and took off quick. Very quick.
“He stopped for a split second, looked down at me lying on the deck. Next thing I ken police and an ambulance were there.”
When solicitor Ross Bennett asked if he was mistaken about the incident and instead had a fall, Mr Hughes said: “I got hit by the car.
“I went down like a ton of bricks.”
Witness Dean Currie, 19, told the court he heard a noise “like a boom” before he saw Mr Hughes lying injured on the street.
Glennie, of Hilltown, denied that after his vehicle collided with Mr Hughes, who was seriously injured, he failed to stop and give his name and address as well as the name and address of the owner of the vehicle and the identification of the vehicle to anyone requiring them on Hill Street on February 2 last year.
He also denied that he drove carelessly and without due consideration for other road users and drove on the wrong side of the road, causing his vehicle to collide with Mr Hughes.
Sheriff Gregor Murray found Glennie guilty on both charges.
He was fined £500 and had eight penalty points added to his licence for the careless driving offence.
Glennie was admonished on the charge of failing to provide his details.
