Drunk driver gets TL 2,000 fine

A man whose drunk driving caused an accident and the death of his wife, was fined TL2000 by Famagusta Court yesterday.

On December 4th 2011, Kemal Karabulut, despite being well over the legal alcohol limit, set off with his wife to visit his in-laws.

However, at the St. Barnabas roundabout, his car hit the pavement, and ended upside down.

His wife was rushed to hospital but died during surgery.

The judge took into account extenuating factors such as the repentance of the driver and the fact that he has a young girl with heart problems to bring up.

Sentence was passed for a fine of TL 2,000.
