Woman to face Murray Bridge court for speeding and alleged drug driving

Two people will face court over serious traffic offences which occurred in the Murraylands on August 18.

Just before 9am, police stopped a car after it was detected travelling at 160 kilometres per hour in a 110 speed zone on the Dukes Highway at Elwomple.

Checks of the licence of the driver, a 43-year-old Victorian woman, revealed she had never held a driver’s licence.

She was drug tested and allegedly returned a positive result for methamphetamine and may face further charges pending the results of a forensic analysis.

She was arrested and charged with exceeding the speed limit and issued with a cannabis expiation notice for possessing cannabis and equipment.

She was bailed to appear in the Murray Bridge Magistrates Court on September 19.
