A MAN accused of a hit and run smash that left a gaping hole in the side of a Scottish Premiership football stadium was being hunted by police.

Bradley Forsyth is alleged to have smashed his Ford Fiesta into the turnstiles at Dundee United’s Tannadice stadium on April 6 last year.

The crash - which occurred the day after United hosted Celtic in a top-flight match - left a hole in the side of the Fair Play Stand at the turnstiles leading to it’s lower tier.

Forsyth is accused of failing to stop and failing to report the crash within 24 hours.

He also faces a further charge of failing to identify the driver of a car in Dundee’s Hilltown following an incident there.

Forsyth, 23, of Playfair Terrace, Dundee, denies the three charges on summary complaint at Dundee Sheriff Court.

Defence solicitor Anika Jethwa said: “He isn’t here today and there are already multiple warrants for his arrest.”

Sheriff Alistair Carmichael issued another warrant for his arrest over the Tannadice crash rap.

A police source said: “Had he turned up at court today he’d have been going to the cells - there are already several matters outstanding against him that he has failed to appear for.”
