Gloucestershire county cricketer George Hankins was fined 600 pounds and barred from driving for 22 months after pleading guilty on Tuesday, July 21 at the Staines Magistrates Court for intoxication. His car crashed on April 19 in Portsmouth Lane, a Cobham residential area.
The accident happened roughly at 8:45 pm, and scene pictures showed substantial damage to three vehicles and left debris scattered throughout the city. Hence the 23-year-old had to go to court for the same hearing.
In addition to the fine, Hankins will likely pay a victim surcharge of 60 pounds and another 85 pounds. Hankins originates from Keynsham Trajectus Way, Bristol. After he was aware of the accident, Gloucestershire will also conduct “a full internal investigation.”
Gloucestershire Cricket was told of an incident being investigated by Surrey Police about one of its players, who was based in Surrey during the COVID-19 lockdown era.
The club is in contact with the player involved, and a thorough internal review has been launched. Since this is a matter handled by the police, the club is not going to comment any further at the moment.
