Moss appeared before Lewes Crown Court on October 28, where she was sentenced to a total of 24 months’ imprisonment and was further disqualified from driving for four years.
Detective Sergeant Mark Williams, of Crawley CID, said: ‘Moss could have seriously injured herself or someone else, and it is only by chance that no one else was involved in the collision that morning.
‘She took absolutely no responsibility for her actions, even walking away from the wreckage as if nothing had happened.
‘Thanks to the swift response of our officers from the Crawley Neighbourhood Response Team, we were able to secure vital evidence including this dash cam footage, which helped to lead to a conviction.’
