A Sydney woman is serving an 18-month jail term after she fled the scene of a crash in which her car hit a motorcycle head-on in April last year.
Molly Cahill, 23, of Sans Souci, was found guilty in Sutherland Local Court in May 2020 and sentenced on 2 July on dangerous driving charges.
Police told court Cahill was driving her Peugeot hatchback on the wrong side of Forest Road in Peakhurst about 1.20am on 8 April 2019 when she hit a motorcycle head-on.
Rider Tony Nissirios, 38, and his female partner Sam, 26, were thrown from their bike and suffered multiple fractures.
Cahill fled the scene, abandoned her car nearby and texted “I think I’ve hit someone”.
She was later arrested at her Sans Souci home and taken to Kogarah Police Station.
Since her first court appearance she has also been found guilty of drug and assault charges and was placed on an 18-month community order, ending in September 2021.
(Apologies for this late article due to my clerical error that listed the sentencing date as 20 July.)
