A MAN has reappeared in court accused of killing three men in a horror Christmas crash on the A5.

Donatas Tominskas (34) of Belmyne, Dublin, appeared at Omagh Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, facing a number of charges relating to a tragic crash on December 27, 2021, that claimed the lives of three men,

Peter Finnegan, Augher, Nathan Corrigan, Garvaghy and Petey McNamee, Sixmilecross, all in their 20s, lost their lives in a collision between a car and Volvo truck on the A5 Omagh Road two Christmases ago.

Following the horrific incident, Tominskas is facing three charges of causing the death through dangerous driving, and a charge of causing grievous bodily injury to another man.

He is also facing charges of driving Volvo HGV without due care and attention, driving with a defective braking system, and speeding.

Tominskas, who had previously appeared in Omagh Court in December, was silent as an update on the case was provided to Deputy District Judge Prenter.

A Police Constable, under oath, said that a file regarding the case had been completed.

Judge Prenter ordered that the case be heard again in Omagh Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, January 23, but agreed to excuse Tominskas from attending due to the distance of travelling to the hearing from Dublin.

Remanding Tominskas on continuing bail, Judge Prenter remarked: “I can see this is a very serious matter.”
