Woman accused of driving drunk and hitting a pedestrian in Sydney

A woman has been charged with drink-driving after a pedestrian was hit by a car in Cabramatta in Sydney’s south west on Sunday.

At around 5.45pm emergency services were called to Curtin Street.

It’s believed a Mitsubishi Lancer was travelling east on Curtin Street when it crashed into three parked cars and a pedestrian.


The pedestrian, a 53-year-old Canley Heights man, was treated at the scene by Ambulance Paramedics before being taken to Liverpool Hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, including a broken leg.

No one else was injured during the incident.

The driver of the Mitsubishi, a 35-year-old Baulkham Hills woman, was subjected to a roadside breath test and returned a positive reading.

She was arrested and taken to Cabramatta Police Station where she allegedly returned a breath analysis reading of 0.077.

She was charged with low range drink-driving and is due to appear at Liverpool Local Court on 15 August.
