Football Star In Court Over M6 Deaths

'McCormick is charged with two counts of causing death by dangerous driving, driving with excess alcohol and driving without insurance'.

I would like to comment on this but would get banned for doing so.

Thoughts are with the mother, family and friends of all involved.

They was on their way to the world series by renault day at silverstone so what was supposed to be a extra special day and treat for the lads makes it seem even worse somehow.

The footballer involved also did a road safety campaign for the one of the police forces warning about the dangers of using a mobile whilst driving, he will just get a few years banged up for this but to me its tantamount to murder. The boys family however will serve a life sentence of grief and suffering, the father would be thinking what-ifs for the rest of his life, what if id gone out 5 minutes later/earlier, what if id taken a different route, wondering what he could have done different so the car wasnt there at that precise time.

My sympathy goes out to the family and I hope the father makes a quick physical recovery, bones heal, unfortunately hearts and minds wont after such a loss.

I was at silverstone saturday, the thought of being there not knowing they should and would of been etc makes me feel awful.

And as for this idiot NOT HAVING INSURANCE !!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, the cars might be insured through the club or whatever, but to me this is dreadful.

A lot of companies (if not all) invalidate the insurance contract if it is found that the insured had been drinking.

So McCormick may well of paid for a policy, but he then invalidated it by driving with alcohol in his system.

I am NOT making any excuses for McCormick, just stating a driving insurance fact.

Yep.... :x


I'm with you on this, My thoughts are with the victims family and friends.

I've no respect for anyone who drinks and drives, Clearly he has no regards for anyone but himself, No insurance, Drink driving etc.

They should lock him up for life, In the end though he'll probably get a £200 fine and banned for 6 months.

i just hope they dont have hassle with insurance - last things on their minds at present i know - but there will come a time when they will have to

as there was no insurance they will have to go through MIB (motor insurance bureau) lots of hassle and time - been there -

If you are drunk and you leave your house with a knife and kill someone it is murder/manslaugter.......

If you are drunk and you leave your house and get in a car, then the car becomes the weapon surely.....?

Lock him up!

I agree, sort of, but more so (if that makes sense?)

I beleive the car is a weapon at all times and the alcohol means that you are not in responsible control of that weapon, therefore we have the above senseless loss of life :-(

he was over the limit
he had no insurance
by the sound of it he was driving crazy

it reads like a little s/!t joyriding -

will he be treated like one - no - he can afford mr loophole - it would be a travesty if he pleads not guilty - cant see it as police hve alcohol readings and no insurance but for the CARELESS driving charge i think he will as it is a prison sentence

the mum dad grandparents etc have an even longer one !!

Many bereaved families are outraged at what they consider pitifully low sentences imposed by judges when a jury has found the killer of their loved one guilty of death by dangerous driving.

The Criminal Justice Act 2003 increased the maximum penalty for causing death by dangerous driving from 10 to 14 years, but the courts hardly ever apply sentences at the top end of the range. This is because judges follow guidelines on the factors to consider when sentencing someone found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving. If they don’t take note of these guidelines, it is possible that their ruling will be overturned in the Court of Appeal, which may adjust the sentence in line with the guidelines

He'll probably only do about half the sentence anyway with reduced sentence for good behavior or whatever.
A young nurse was killed on a road near us and the driver, who was drunk and racing for a bet only received about 4 years.

[SIZE="4"][COLOR="Red"]An absolute disgrace. Anyone that gets in a car drunk and then kills someone is guilty of murder, nothing less IMO[/COLOR][/SIZE].

Totally agree with hotto on this, disgusting and so wrong the sentences dished out for this especially where 'celebrities' are concerned.

Seems to be forgotten the statistics are reall people with families. :x

This is not correct. Although it is true to say that you invalidate your insurance if you drink and drive, you cannot therefore claim for yourself from them. The police would not mention no insurance, if he had been insured. Clearly there is some problem with his insurance, and of course his morals.

I have no doubt he will be able to come up with a very plausible reason why he was not insured, footballers being such essential busy people...mere oversight.

In this day and age, it would make such a refreshing change if he owned up, threw his hand in and pleaded guilty immediately, if only for the sake of this poor family. Little comfort now to them.

If you leave your house with a knife and kill "someone" it isnt necessarily murder/manslaughter. Not that I am splitting hairs, just commenting.
Although, the seriousness of the offence in this thread should warrant a custodial sentence. He has been charged with a fair amount.
