Teen faces 'run over bid' trial

A DUBLIN youth has been accused of attempting to run over a teenage boy with a BMW 4X4.

Christopher O'Neill (18), of Larkhill Road, Whitehall, had already been charged with dangerous driving at Shantalla Road, Santry, Dublin, on August 1 and assaulting the 17-year-old boy at Swords Road on the same date.

Yesterday at the Dublin Children's Court a further charge was brought of intentionally or recklessly using the 4X4 to knock down the teenager "creating a risk of death or serious harm".

The case is to be sent forward to the Circuit Court and O'Neill was remanded in custody pending the preparation of a book of evidence.
