An Islington man yesterday pleaded not guilty to causing grievous bodily harm in connection to a hit-and-run collision that put a 90-year-old in hospital.
Danny O’Reilly, 23, appeared at Blackfriars Crown Court charged with GBH, driving without insurance, driving not in accordance with a licence, failing to stop and failing to report a road traffic collision.
Police charged O’Reilly on January 21 and he appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on February 18.
The case relates to an incident in Central Street on August 6, which left the victim suffering from “serious injuries” to his head and leg.
At the time a Met Police spokesperson said: “Officers were called to Worcester Point, following reports of a collision between a moped and a male pedestrian.”
