A Monkton woman who could not remember crashing her car while more than double the limit has been banned from driving.

Sue Ellen Callen, of St Martins Road, pleaded guilty to driving while over the legal alcohol limit when he appeared before Haverfordwest magistrates on Tuesday, October 30.

Sian Vaughan, prosecuting, told the court that two women were seen to get out of a Ford Kuga and run away from the scene after a collision with another vehicle in King Street, Pembroke Dock, at around 10.30pm on September 29.

Both were located at a nearby property when police arrived, but Callen, 39, stated she could not remember driving or being involved in a crash.

She was found to have 86mg of alcohol in 100ml of breath, the legal limit is 35mg.

David Elvy, defending, said Callen had been with friends on the day in question, and had left her car keys in a safe place as she was not intending to drive home.

“She says her recollection is quite limited unfortunately.”

Mr Elvy added that Callen had no explanation for the offence, but her insurance would cover damage caused by the collision.

The court heard that Callen, who worked in catering, normally drove to work, and may have to find new employment after losing her licence.

Callen was banned from driving for 20 months and fined £225. She was ordered to pay £115 in court costs and a surcharge.

The chairman of the bench said: “It is an aggravating factor that you were carrying a passenger and were involved in a collision.”
