Drunk woman flips car on roundabout at Banora Point

NSW police have charged a 22-year-old woman from Labrador in Queensland after she admitted to flipping her car on a roundabout at Banora Point last Friday (December 9).

At about 10pm a black Mazda was travelling south along Sexton Hill Drive at Banora Point when it collided with the gutter at a roundabout, causing it to flip and cross into the northbound lanes, coming to rest against a power pole.

Police drove upon the scene a short time later and located the woman who admitted to being the driver at the time of the collision.

A roadside breath test returned a positive result and she was taken to the Tweed Heads Police Station where a breath analysis indicated a reading of 0.141. She was issued with court attendance notices for mid range PCA, negligent driving and her licence to drive has been suspended.

There were no injuries as a result of the collision.

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
