Drink-driving mother caused accident with young children in car

A woman was arrested in Larnaca on Friday for drink-driving with her two young children in her car and causing an accident.

Police arrested the 35-year-old woman on Friday afternoon, after the rental car she was driving hit into the back of another car, which had stopped on the road due to heavy traffic.

When police arrived at the scene, they conducted an initial alcohol breath test on the drivers of the vehicles, with the one showing zero, and the 35-year-old’s showing an initial 93μg instead of the allowed 22.

The woman was taken to the station by authorities with her two children. At the station police conducted a second test, which showed a result of 100μg.

Police released the woman and the two children, and they were driven to their home by authorities and accompanied by an official from the welfare office.

The woman will appear in court on Monday, where the case will be heard.
