Woman jailed after horrific Adelaide crash



A woman who slammed into two drivers while she fled police in Adelaide has been jailed.

Tina Beaumont was unlicenced and under the influence of methamphetamine when she caused a crash as she tried to out-run police in the suburb of Hillcrest.

One of the injured drivers, Bianca Radny, was sent careering into a Stobie pole during the crash in January.

Radny, who was in court to see Beaumont sentenced to four years jail today, described the crash as "pretty traumatic".

"Especially because I didn't see it coming towards me or anything… but I'm just glad I'm alive," she said.

The force of the impact lifted one of the cars half a metre into the air.
