Spanish coach driver banned after collision with elderly couple
Windsor Coach Park's turning circle

A Spanish coach driver who hit a 90-year-old man and his wife at Windsor Coach Park has been banned from driving.

Augustin Martin-Escobar of Seville, Spain, pleaded guilty to driving without due care and attention at Slough Magistrates' Court on Friday.

The 36-year-old hit an elderly couple turning his Spanish-registered Volvo Irizar coach around at the park's turning circle in Alma Road on January 5.

The man had to have an operation to remove his leg and his wife, 80, also suffered a minor head injury in the incident.

Martin-Escobar has been disqualified from driving for six months, fined £500, and issued a £15 victim surcharge and costs of £85.
