Truckie learns that speed and driving don't mix
IPSWICH truck driver Jy Kelly learned the hard way that professional drivers must have no drugs in their system when behind the wheel of a big rig.
He had used the drug speed some days before. Jy Joseph Kelly, 42, from East Ipswich, pleaded guilty in Ipswich Magistrates Court to having methylamphetamine in his system when in charge of a motor vehicle at Lyra on August 17, according to a report by the Queensland Times.
Prosecutor Senior Constable Narelle Krushka said police found Kelly at 7.15am behind the wheel of a prime-mover that was stopped near Lyra on the New England Highway.
