80-year-old man drove at over 150 km/hour for 20 min. because he fell asleep at the wheel

Friday, January 29, 2010

Eighty-year-old farmer and former Sunday school teacher Ron Bell originally blamed his lead foot on being late for an appointment, police said.

But yesterday he told Horsham Magistrates' Court he temporarily fell asleep at the wheel.

Magistrate Richard Pithouse said it was the most "nonsensical'' excuse he had ever heard and an insult to his intelligence.

Mr Bell drove at more than 150km/h for 23km in a 100km/h zone outside Horsham while being pursued by a police vehicle, the court heard.
