POLICE have charged a 27-year-old woman after an incident in which she allegedly ran down a group of people and crashed her car into a fence in Padbury.
Police claim a woman was talking to the occupants of a house in MacDonald Avenue just before 10pm last night.
A verbal altercation began and the occupants of the house started throwing things at the woman’s car, a Mitsubishi Magna sedan.
The woman drove away from the house, but returned a few minutes later and allegedly drove at the occupants of the house who were standing in the driveway and front yard.
A 23-year-old woman was injured, sustaining a broken ankle, cuts and abrasions.
The driver then allegedly drove at a fence on the property, causing significant damage to the vehicle.
The driver, a South Hedland woman, was taken to Royal Perth Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
She was charged with driving with a blood alcohol limit in excess of 0.08 and an act or omission causing bodily harm.
She will appear in Perth Magistrates Court today.
