A driver who hit an intoxicated pedestrian outside the Geraldton Hotel while under the influence of cannabis last year has avoided jail. Callum Harley Stanley Trumann, 25, appeared on Wednesday in Geraldton Magistrate’s Court, where he pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing bodily harm and driving under the influence of drugs. The court heard Trumann had 7.5 micrograms of cannabis per litre of blood at the time of the October 4 incident, which involved him hitting a pedestrian attempting to cross the road after leaving the pub. Trumann was distracted and did not see the man, who rolled on to the car bonnet upon impact. His lawyer said Trumann had an intellectual disability and had been clean from cannabis use for at least six months. Magistrate Raelene Johnston told Trumann a car was a “lethal weapon” and it was fortunate no one was killed in the incident. She placed Trumann on an eight-month community-based order, fined him $900, and ordered that he pay court costs. His licence was also suspended.
