An Ipswich woman who has admitted careless driving and an offence of wounding will be sentenced next month.
Before Ipswich Crown Court for a plea hearing today (Friday) was Nicola Tucker, 50, of Fountains Road, Ipswich, who denied an offence of dangerous driving but pleaded guilty to a less serious charge of careless driving.
The offence was committed on November 30 last year when Tucker was driving a Nissan Pixo Acenta in Wherstead Road, Ipswich.
She also admitted an offence of inflicting grievous bodily harm on Ryan Simmonds on the same date.
Tucker denied a further charge of causing serious injury by careless driving and prosecuting counsel, Joanne Eley said the pleas to careless driving and inflicting grievous bodily harm were acceptable.
