Pregnant woman's car crashed into field, Carlisle court told

A mum-to-be lost control of her car, crashed through a hedge and ended up in a field.

Twenty-year-old Stacey Clark, of Water Street, Wigton, “seemed to lose control” of her silver Ford Focus as she drove from Oulton to Wigton on January 9, Carlisle Magistrates’ Court heard.

Clark, who is heavily pregnant, was taken to the Cumberland Infirmary for treatment, but was later released.

She told police during an interview that perhaps she was driving too fast, but it seemed the car hit some gravel on the road and she “lost the back end” as she was taking a corner.

Clark, who already has five points on her licence, admitted driving without due care and attention and was banned from the roads for six months.

She also admitted driving without insurance and was given another seven points.

Clark was fined £140 and ordered to pay £85 court costs and a £20 victim surcharge.
