A Melbourne woman accused of crashing her car while nearly nine times above the legal blood alcohol limit has been charged with reckless conduct endangering serious injury.
The reading is one of the highest in Victoria for past decade. Ms Leanne Fay Bartelson, 44, had a blood alcohol level of .448 when she turned in front of oncoming traffic on Somerton Rd, near her Roxburgh Park home, about 9.40am on May 14, police allege. She will reappear in Broadmeadows Court on October 15.
