A FORMER glamour model caused a four car pileup when she lost control searching her vehicle for a sandwich.

Dionne Stenner, 35, who fronted adult shows on Playboy TV and TVX under the name Morgan James, was seen reaching across the dashboard of her VW Beetle as the car crossed white lines and hit oncoming traffic head on.

Magistrates in Brighton heard the mother-of-three, who now works as a mobile hairdresser, was driving back from the gym on the A259 when her car began to drift across the road on March 28 this year.

The road was busy with traffic and Stenner’s Beetle hit two oncoming vehicles causing them to hit two more.

Police found evidence of a sandwich spread across the car after the crash in which several people were injured.

Officers found brown bread in the footwell and dashboard, the court heard.

Two people suffered serious injuries and van driver Alan Saunders needed surgery on his leg following the smash.

Stenner, of Westfield Rise, Saltdean, was also injured and the court heard she has already been given four penalty points for speeding in 2016.

Magistrate Alison Pollard fined Stenner £300 for careless driving and imposed another seven penalty points on her licence.

The crash near Roedean at 6.30am meant the A259 had to be closed in both directions.

Firefighters from Roedean and from Preston Circus made the vehicles safe and helped with first aid.

And four ambulances were required to take the four patients to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton.

A South East Coast Ambulance Service spokeswoman told The Argus: “One of the drivers, a man in his 40’s suffered arm, leg and pelvic injuries and a woman in her 30’s suffering potential back injuries.

“Another man in his 20’s sustained a foot injury and a woman passenger a head injury.”
