A DRUNKEN teenager threw herself in front of a car in a suicidal stunt, a court heard.

Tiffany Millar banged her head off the windscreen and skinned her knees as she bounced off onto the road.

But Livingston Sheriff Court heard she remembered nothing of the incident because she’d had so much alcohol.

Millar, 16, of The Avenue, Whitburn, West Lothian, pleaded guilty to a charge of culpable and reckless conduct.

She admitted jumping in front of a moving motor vehicle causing a collision and damage to the windscreen.

The incident took place in Marjoribanks Street, Bathgate, West Lothian on March 27.

Lindsey Armstrong, prosecuting, said Millar’s conduct had put car driver Louise Walsh and other road users in danger.

Neil Robertson, defending, said: “She remembers nothing about what happened because she was so drunk.”

Sheriff Peter Hammond warned Millar to stay out of trouble and deferred sentence until March next year for good behaviour.
