WHEN Heather Russell ran her lover down after a bitter argument she was so distressed by what had happened, she had to be taken to hospital to be treated for shock, along with the victim, who sustained fractures and other injuries.
Russell, 29, has been committed to district court for sentencing on December 12 after pleading guilty to negligent driving causing grievous harm and dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm while under the influence.
The accused was also charged with malicious damage under the sum of $15,000 after she drove the car into the corner of a house after an argument with the victim.
According to police, the couple began arguing at around 4.40pm on November 9 last year and the victim jumped from the car before Russell ran the vehicle into the corner of a house in Breen Street.
Russell then reversed the vehicle and drove off before seeing the victim walking along Wentworth Lane moments later.
Police evidence stated Russell crossed to the wrong side of the road, hitting the victim, who landed on the windscreen before falling to the road.
She continued for a distance before stopping the vehicle and running back to the victim who was already receiving help from witnesses to the incident.
The victim was taken to hospital with a broken leg and broken wrist, dislocated shoulder and damage to his right eye.
Police breath tested Russell and she recorded a reading of .143.
She pleaded guilty to the offences.
