A Sydney woman accused of hitting four pedestrians with her car while drink-driving and using her hand-held mobile phone is in hospital, a court has heard.
Lisa Irene Mottram, 50, has been charged with seven offences including dangerous driving and negligent driving occasioning grievous bodily harm after the alleged incident on Hezlett Road in Kellyville on September 16.
Mottram is the former wife of ex-Parramatta Eels chief executive Denis Fitzgerald.
Police allege her white Honda CR-V left the road at about 9.20pm and struck four pedestrians.
A four-year-old girl was taken to hospital in a critical condition with head and internal injuries while a 45-year-old man was treated for non-life threatening head injuries.
A 44-year-old woman was in a serious condition after suffering facial injuries and fractures to her arm and pelvis and a 55-year-old woman sustained internal and spinal injuries.
Mottram allegedly returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.113, considered mid-range drink-driving, according to court documents.
She is also accused of using a hand-held mobile phone while the vehicle was moving.
In Parramatta Local Court on Wednesday, magistrate Garry Still continued Mottram's bail but suspended the condition of reporting to police after hearing she is in hospital.
Mottram was taken to Westmead Hospital after the alleged incident for mandatory testing but released within hours. Her matter was adjourned to December 6.
