Brought to justice
A drink driver who crashed her car outside a school in Benfleet has been banned from driving thanks to work from our specialist Roads Policing officers.
We had been called to Croft Road at around 3.45pm on 9 February this year after Hannah Green had crashed her red Vauxhall Viva.
Staff from the nearby school, who were leaving at the time, approached the car to help Green, who was then taken into the school where staff called us.
When officers carried out a breathalyser test, 31 year-old Green, of Southwold Crescent, Benfleet, was found to be four-and-a-half times the legal limit.
She was charged with drink driving and pleaded guilty at Chelmsford Magistrates’ Court on 9 March.
She was given a 12 week prison sentence suspended for a year, banned from driving for two and-a-half years, told to undergo rehab, and ordered to pay £233 in costs and victim surcharge.
PC Asa Smith, from the Chigwell Roads Policing Unit, said:
“It was incredibly fortunate that all the children had dispersed the area, 10 minutes earlier and there could have been serious injury caused to any number of children leaving the school”.
