3:14pm Wednesday 2nd July 2014 in News
A 33-year-old woman will appear in court charged with drink driving after a serious crash.
Laura Gardiner lost control of her grey BMW 120 on the A22 in Ashurstwood shortly after 9am on 17 June and crashed into a Citroen DS3 travelling in the opposite direction.
The driver of the Citroen, a 63-year-old woman from East Grinstead, had to be cut out of her vehicle and was taken to hospital with chest injuries.
Gardiner, of Tile Barn Close, Isfield, has now been charged with drink-driving and released on bail to appear at Crawley Magistrates' Court on 16 July.
She is one of 99 people who have been charged with drink or drug-related driving offences in June as part of Operation Dragonfly, Sussex Police's crackdown on offenders.
