A woman in her 50s from Sandown has been disqualified from driving after crashing into a wall in Bembridge whilst almost 3 times the drink-drive limit.
Cara Ann Wright, 51, of Station Avenue, appeared at the Isle of Wight Magistrates Court on Friday (15th January) charged with driving whilst over the prescribed limit – drink driving.
The court heard how Wright was driving her Mazda Demio through the village of Bembridge on 25th November last year when she lost control and ploughed into a wall at the junction of Lane End and Steyne Road.
Police and paramedics were called to the scene and Wright was later arrested on suspicion of drink driving. She blew 92 on the evidential machine – the legal limit is 35.
Magistrates handed down a 23-month driving ban and ordered Cara, who pleaded guilty to the offence, to complete 40 hours of unpaid work. Wright must also pay £85 costs with a £95 surcharge.
