Woman walks into path of car on Carlisle street

A woman who walked onto a busy road into the path of a car has appeared in court.

Jackie Linda Cameron, 50, stepped in front of an on-coming car in Newtown Road, Carlisle forcing it to stop, city magistrates heard.

The motorist attempted to drive round her as she stood in the street shouting: “Just run me over I’m useless.”

Cameron, of nearby Port Road, was arrested and taken into police custody where she became abusive to officers spitting in the face of one of them.

Adrienne Harris, prosecuting, told the court the motorist got out of his car and tried to coax Cameron off the road but she would not move until police officers arrived.

Cameron, who admitted assaulting a police officer, has 41 previous offences over a 13-year period for assault, being drunk and disorderly, public order offences and making nuisance 999 calls.

Nick Kennon, defending, told magistrates that his client had was now receiving help for “significant” issues relating to personal problems and alcohol.

She was fined £75.
