Lightfoot turns into a leadfoot

A WOMAN terrified residents of a Pittsworth street as she used her car to repeatedly ram a neighbour's tree and fence.

Police arrived in Cunningham St to find Lucy-Dawne Lightfoot driving across the road and ramming a tree and fence on November 6.

She reversed and continued ramming the property. A fence post was sticking out of her headlight.

Lightfoot, 31, was not wearing a seatbelt and her head hit the windscreen when she rammed the property for a fifth time.

She lost consciousness and her car began to roll backwards.

A police officer reached into the moving car and turned off the ignition. Her car was written-off.

Prosecutor Sergeant Tony Costa said Lightfoot had no regard for her safety or the safety of others.

She was angry at her mother. However, her mother did not live at the residence she damaged.

Lightfoot appeared in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court today and pleaded guilty to dangerous driving.

She has a history of drug and mental health issues. Lightfoot was placed on probation for two years and disqualified from driving for 12 months.
