Surgeon warned after hitting pedestrian


A cancer surgeon in Britain has been issued with a warning by Britain’s General Medical Council after he hit a Cork man with his car, causing severe head injuries. Mr O’Driscoll, who was crossing the road at the time, had to have part of his skull removed and a metal plate inserted following the collision, and is still receiving rehabilitation treatment more than two years later. Prof Bundred was found guilty of the offence at a criminal trial at Tameside Magistrates Court last year, and was fined £2,000, a victim surcharge of £170, and the prosecution costs of £850. Mr O’Driscoll obtained a copy of the 999 call Prof Bundred made following the incident. Mr O’Driscoll said: “As my family and I suffer every day from the consequences of this injury, it is maddening to know that it was a doctor who did this to me.
