Road Traffic Collision on the A14 at Creeting St Mary
Suffolk: Drink Driver Jailed
A woman's been sentenced to 3 months in prison after she drunk drove and injured a 7 year old girl in Eyke in Suffolk.
A 32-year-old woman has been sentenced to three months in prison following a road traffic collision at Eyke on Thursday 22 December where a seven-year-old girl was seriously injured.
Joanna Cox, of Little Horsey Park in Campsea Ashe, was arrested shortly after the collision and in February pleaded guilty to driving with excess alcohol, driving with a defective tyre, driving without due care and attention, and possession of cannabis.
Today she appeared at Ipswich Magistrates Court and was sentenced to three months imprisonment and disqualified from driving for two years.
The mother of the girl who was injured said in court today that she hopes a full active life is not taken away from her, "…all because an adult thought it was safe to drive whilst drunk with others in the car."
The girl was taken to Ipswich hospital following the collision and later transferred to Addenbrookes hospital where she received treatment for a fractured neck. She was discharged a week later but still has a metal frame to support her neck.
