Drink-driver banned for three years
A 30-year-old woman was yesterday banned from the roads for three years for a drink-driving crash that left a motorcyclist injured.
Dulce Ramirez Davis, 30, pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm with a vehicle while over the legal drink-driving limit.
Magistrates' Court heard the crash happened at the junction of Middle Road and Cobb's Hill Road at about 1.40am on December 25.
Ramirez Davis was driving south on Cobb's Hill Road when she collided with a motorcycle at Middle Road.
The motorcyclist suffered a broken left collarbone and broken left thumb in the crash.
Police at the scene noticed that Ramirez Davis, from Warwick, slurred her words and her breath smelled of alcohol.
She told police when questioned: “I have only had a couple of beers.”
A later breath test showed 87 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood — the legal limit is 80.
Ramirez Davis told magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo: “I would like to say I am really sorry for what happened. It will never happen again.”
Mr Tokunbo also fined Ramirez Davis $2,000.
