Woman Involved In M50 Car Chase Sent Forward For Trial

Gemma Greene, from Bunratty Road, Coolock, Dublin, hasn't yet indicated how she intends to plead.

Gemma Greene is accused of endangerment of life by leading twenty Garda cars and a helicopter on a livestreamed pursuit down the M50 on March 1st.

The 24 year old was arrested after Gardaí stopped a Mercedes car in Ballymun.

She was originally charged with two counts of dangerous driving but thirteen additional charges were subsequently added, including endangerment of life.

The DPP has directed that she be tried before a judge and jury at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court, where the penalties on conviction are higher.
Strict bail conditions were imposed on her previously but a legal challenge has resulted in them being eased somewhat.

The court heard it will be alleged that the chase ran from Ballymun to Bray and back again.

Ms Greene will face her next court hearing on July 30.
