Drink driver jailed for killing woman


Larnaca district court on Wednesday sentenced a 52-year-old woman to 12 months in prison after she was found guilty of causing death through drink driving.

On July 11, 2019 at around 9.40pm the 52-year-old was driving along the old Kornos-Kofinou road when she ran over and fatally injured a 68-year-old woman.

A subsequent alco-test showed 47μg% instead of 22μg% in her bloodstream.

She was also slapped with a six-point penalty deduction, suspended from driving for 18 months after release and a 300 euro fine for driving under the influence of alcohol.
