Three Family Members Sent To Crown Court After Horrific Crash

Thursday August 8 2013


Sheffield Crown Court Sheffield Crown Court


THREE family members have appeared in court charged in connection with a crash which left a pedestrian fighting for his life.

Scott McMannis, 20, of Townend, Barnsley, is accused of aggravated vehicle taking, driving without insurance, failing to stop at the scene of a collision and perverting the course of justice.

The crash, which happened on Racecommon Road last December, saw McMannis arrested after a 50-year-old man was struck by a vehicle which failed to stop.

The collision broke nearly every bone in the man’s body which meant he had a four-month stay in hospital. 

Stacey McMannis, 25, and Gary John McMannis, 48, both of Townend, Barnsley, are each charged with perverting the course of justice.

All three appeared at Barnsley Magistrates’ Court on August 2. The hearing was adjourned and the case was sent to Sheffield Crown Court. All three defendants were granted conditional bail.

The case will resume on August 16.

I know the mans family and their lives have changed forever with this act.hopefully justice will be done and there will be one less on the road to worry about.we all love our family but to cover up something this serious is beyond belief.

The judge should throw the book at em, they have no idea or don't care how much heartache and suffering they cause other people, they really are a parasite on the human race.

With things like this.. the charge should actually be ATTEMPTED MANSLAUGHTER, or MURDER.. the lethal weapon is the car.
and should carry the same penalty.. too many get off very lightly..
The victim, and family have to suffer with this for LIFE.

They should all be locked up in my opinion.Every bone in that poor mans body was broken and he had to stay in hospital for 4 months can't begin to imagine what him and his family must have gone and still be going through.
