No prosecution against driver of car that struck Jake Brennan

There will be no prosecution against the driver who drove the car that struck Jake Brennan (6) in Lintown, Kilkenny in June 2014.

The young boy died after he was knocked down by the car, while playing outside his home.

At the inquest in Carlow today, Thursday, two witnesses gave evidence, one stating the car was going “too fast”, the other stating the car as going “a bit fast.”

The driver of the car did not attend, and a medical certification was handed in on that person's behalf.

Jake's mother, Roseann has been leading the Jake's Legacy campaign since his death, securing the enactment of 'Jake's Law' which calls for the reduction of speed limits in housing estates.
