Mere teenager to be sentenced for dangerous driving

Published by Faye Tryhorn at 11:44am 19th March 2019.

19 year old Carter Victor Light was charged with an offence when he appeared at court yesterday (Monday March 18th).

The teen had been sent a postal requisition order, summoning him to Weymouth Magistrates.

On arrival, he was charged with causing serious injury by dangerous driving.


The charge is in connection with a crash that happened last July, when the green Vauxhall Astra he was driving smashed into a wall near a North Dorset caravan site.

That left one person, a 21 year old female from Warminster with serious injuries.

Two others needed hospital treatment for their injuries and a fourth was treated by paramedics at the scene.

No other vehicles were involved.


Mr Light has pleaded guilty to the charges against him.

He's due to appear before Bournemouth Crown Court for sentencing and that's been scheduled for April 12th 2019.
