Moment of paralysis caused crash, woman tells court

A DRIVER blames her crash along the Dawson Highway on a moment of 'paralysis' when she lost feeling in her arms.

Gladstone Magistrates Court heard that Kylie Yvonne Williams crashed her car at 7.50pm on August 30.

The 28-year-old pleaded guilty to driving without due care and attention.

Prosecutor Snr Const Sam Pyke said the car, a Toyota Aurion, had veered into the right lane not far from Callemondah St before crashing.

Police at the scene described very loud music coming from the car with Williams found walking 20m away and in shock.

"She says she was driving at 50km/h when she lost feeling in both arms, then lost senses in both legs," Snr Const Pyke said.

Magistrate Mark Morrow fined Williams $750, saying her medical issues were of concern with regard to the safety of other road users.
