A 44-year-old woman has been given a stern warning by a magistrate after crashing her car and seriously injuring a victim in Perth’s south. Patricia Yvonne McAllister appeared via video link before Rockingham Magistrates Court last Friday charged with one count of careless driving, one count of driving while impaired by drugs and one count of failing to stop. Prosecutor Sen. Const. Jessica Anderson told the court that on July 6, 2022, about 6.10pm, McAllister was driving south along Mulgara Mews in Port Kennedy. Upon approaching the roundabout, McAllister failed to negotiate the bend and drove straight into the complainant’s house, causing debris and bricks from the house to cave in. The victim was sitting in his living room at the time and was hit by the car. He received a laceration to the head, spine and a blood clot to the upper right leg. McAllister walked away from the scene, however was located a short time after. Officers who attended the scene said that McAllister was unaware of where she was and was unstable on her feet at the time of the incident. Lawyer Abigail Rogers said that McAllister was heavily “impaired” by drugs on the night of the incident. “She has absolutely no memory of the incident and is extremely ashamed and remorseful,” Ms Rogers said. “She has expressed to me that she would have rendered assistance had she have known someone was injured.” Ms Rogers said that at the time McAllister had been drinking with friends and was offered drugs, which had a “profound effect on her in this instance”. Magistrate Anne Longden said the incident was “really serious” given McAllister was out on parole for other drug related offences and on this particular night provided “no assistance to the person that deserved and required it in this instance”. “This has had an awful impact on the person both physically and physiologically,” Ms Longden said. McAllister was sentenced to six months imprisonment with time-served taken into consideration and eligibility for parole.
