Mum busted drink driving with kids in car after hitting woman pushing pram

A mother has been charged with drink driving with two young kids in the car after she allegedly hit a woman who was pushing a pram along a suburban Sydney street.

NSW police said the 48-year-old woman was driving on William Street in Ermington when she hit a 55-year-old woman who was pushing a pram containing a two-year-old boy and five-year-old girl just after 8.30am on Monday.

Miraculously, the trio managed to escape serious injury, however the young girl suffered a large cut to her knee and the boy had swelling to his face.


The woman pushing the pram sustained a leg injury and all three were taken to Westmead Hospital for treatment.

Following the crash, the driver was taken to Granville Police Station where she returned an alleged breath analysis reading of 0.09.

She was charged with mid-range PCA and her licence has also been suspended.

Two kids, aged eight and 10, who were passengers in the vehicle at the time of the crash thankfully were not injured.

Police say a child-at-risk notification has been submitted to the Department of Family and Community Services.

“Investigations are continuing, and police are expecting to lay further charges.”
