A MOTORCYCLIST was seriously injured after crashing his bike while banned from the road for a fourth time.
Liam Duncan suffered a fractured skull in the smash in April last year.
He needs physiotherapy for his injuries, Livingston Sheriff Court was told before he was jailed and disqualified from driving for life.
Duncan, 24, of Livingston, West Lothian, pleaded guilty to driving while banned and without insurance.
Graham Fraser, prosecuting, said: “He sustained a skull fracture but, before doctors could fully treat him, he walked out of the hospital.”
Stewart Peebles, defending, claimed Duncan had mainly been riding on dirt tracks. He added: “This was foolish in the extreme. ”
Duncan was jailed for four months and fined £350.
