WOMAN FACES COURT OVER SERIOUS CAR CRASH

A driver who was allegedly under the influence of cannabis and using her mobile phone at the time of a serious crash at Lake Macquarie, has faced court in Newcastle.

The woman is accused of running a red light on the Pacific Highway and slamming into another car back in March, seriously injuring a 73-year-old woman.

Today no pleas were entered by her solicitor, and the matter was adjourned to next month.
