Prosecutor Peter Conroy said: “The defendant collided with the back of a Hyundai car and happened in front of a police officer, who was in an unmarked vehicle.
The officer observed that the defendant was driving a short distance of 20 meters after the collision and thought that the defendant would get out of her car to exchange details with the victim.
But instead, she started to pull away from her again and then he stopped her so she couldn’t keep driving.

Police checks also showed that she was uninsured or unlicensed. She took a breath sample and the lowest reading was 138 micrograms in 100 milliliters of breath; therefore, the custody threshold has clearly been exceeded.
