Ducie alleged to have left scene of car accident
Convicted criminal Kieron 'The Wolf' Ducie is being investigated by gardaí for allegedly leaving the scene of an accident after he was involved in a car crash which left a model with injuries.
The model, Emily Jane Stewart (23), the former partner of Gerry 'The Monk' Hutch's nephew Alan Hutch, is said to be recovering from back injuries she received in the crash at around 8.30pm on Sunday.
Both Ducie (46) and Ms Stewart, who is from Clonshaugh in Dublin, required hospital treatment after the incident, which occurred less than a kilometre from his home in Kilmessan, Co Meath.
Ducie was driving his Toyota Landcruiser when it crashed into a ditch while his pal Ms Stewart was a passenger.
After the crash, Ducie allegedly left the vehicle, leaving an extremely distressed Ms Stewart to call the emergency services.
The model was brought to Connolly Hospital in Blanchardstown for a back injury and she was no longer in the vehicle when Ducie arrived back at the scene around two hours after the accident.
Ducie, who was not arrested or breathalysed, suffered minor injuries.
