A mother who drunkenly mowed down her daughter and dragged her 150 metres along a road in Sydney’s south has escaped jail time.

Dale Palmer struck her daughter Keely, then 27, with a car and dragged her down Ash Avenue in Caringbah South in May last year after a 21st birthday party at the family home.

The victim was pinned under the car for more than 90 minutes while emergency services worked to free her.

Palmer’s daughter suffered serious injuries.

Palmer returned a positive breath test result, with a reading of 0.166, and was charged at Sutherland Police Station.

Palmer was today handed a two-year driving suspension and 250 hours of community service.

Her lawyer said she “has no desire to drive in the future”.
