A woman who lost control of her car and crashed was ordered to take part in a court treatment programme after pleading guilty to drink-driving.

Ryley Mason, 21, from Pembroke, admitted the offence when she appeared in Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

Prosecutor Alan Richards said that Mason lost control of her car while driving along Mullet Bay Road, in St George’s, and hit a wall on October 20.

Mason told police officers that she had drunk alcohol before getting behind the wheel.

She was taken to the Hamilton Police Station where a breathalyser test showed 123 mg of alcohol with 100ml of blood. The legal limit for driving in Bermuda is 80mg/100ml.

Mason was disqualified from driving all vehicles until further notice and was ordered to take part in DUI Court.
