Boxer fined for careless driving in fatal crash
Tuesday 18 August 1992
Haywards Heath magistrates' court, in West Sussex, was told the incident occurred last February when his Range Rover left the A23 London-Brighton road and ploughed into a building site, killing Kevin Lawlor, 33, a labourer. The boxer had denied the charge.
Maria Higgins, for the prosecution, said Eubank, 26, of Hove, East Sussex, had been driving to Gatwick aiport to catch a flight to Jamaica when the crash happened. Although Eubank had been driving within the speed limit he had been unable to control the vehicle.
After the accident Eubank said the car had skidded on grit or pebbles. He told police he had been travelling at 58mph and had thought he should slow down. He touched the brakes, which caused the car to swerve and eventually leave the road.
Eubank said once the vehicle started to sway it was difficult to regain control. As it went off the road, he said, 'I saw this fellow there, and I couldn't do anything'.
Eubank's licence was also endorsed with six points and he was ordered to pay costs of pounds 1,450.
