A mother caused a crash in which another driver was slightly injured.

Patricia Greenhill, 24, formerly of Holly Mews, St Annes, now living at Dalewood Avenue, Marton, pleaded guilty to driving without due care and attention.

She was fined £45 with £85 costs plus £20 victims’ surcharge and had three motoring penalty points on her licence by District Judge David Purcell sitting at Blackpool Magistrates’s Court.

Pam Smith, prosecuting, said Greenhill was driving a Renault Clio when she edged out of a junction at Collyhurst Avenue and Common Edge Road and collided with a Saab on May 15 at 2.20pm.

Greenhill told the judge: “I was creeping out and being careful.”
