Police say a woman has been charged after she was allegedly caught high-range drink driving – with a child in the car – following a crash in Kingscliff.

The report says that at about 8.40pm yesterday (Sunday), officers from Tweed/Byron Police District were called to Kingscliff Street, Kingscliff, after a Mazda 2 sedan crashed into a parked car.

Police arrived to find the driver, a 41-year-old woman, had a three-year-old girl in the back seat.

The driver was given a roadside breath test which returned a positive result. She was arrested and taken to Tweed Heads Police Station, where she returned an alleged breath analysis reading of 0.324.

The woman’s licence was suspended and she was issued a Court Attendance Notice for high-range drink driving and is due to appear before Tweed Heads Local Court on Monday 2 March 2020.

The woman suffered minor cuts and the child was uninjured.

  1. She should be put in jail ( her actions are inexclusable )and her daughter should be put in care of family or state services. In my experience people drive over the limit in Kingscliff as the police station is not named after hours and they take the risk ( act of stupidity) that there will be no highway patrol testing units atound
