An extremely intoxicated woman who used her car as a weapon to run down her friend after a Sydney wake has been jailed for at least two years and five months.
Debra Anne Holland pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm to Lisa Coleman with intent in December 2017 at Waterloo.
After the women - who had recently reconnected as friends - drunkenly argued, the then-50-year-old Holland deliberately drove at Ms Coleman twice, striking her once and causing serious injuries.
In the NSW District Court on Friday, Judge John Pickering jailed Holland for four years and nine months, with a non-parole period of two years and five months.
"There is a complete loss of control, probably caused by alcohol, definitely caused by anger and she had the facility - that is, a motor vehicle - and in her temper and rage could run down the person who was upsetting her," Judge Pickering said.
Ms Coleman spent more than a month in hospital but died in April 2018 in unrelated circumstances.
