A motorist fell asleep at the wheel for almost 200 MILES – and continued to send text messages from her mobile.

Police in New Zealand received a 999 call in the middle of the night from a woman who was worried her friend had driven after taking sleeping medication.

She was found after driving for five hours – 190 miles from home.

The woman had pulled up in the driveway of her old house, and had no memory of the drive.

Police tracked her using her mobile phone and saw that she was sending text messages throughout the drive.

Shockingly, this is not her first night-time trip – the woman was found sleep-driving to the beach 10 months ago.

Senior sergeant Dave Litton said: “We have sought an urgent order forbidding her to drive and to seek medical advice on her suitability to remain holding her driver’s licence.”

He added that the drive could have been disastrous for both the woman and others.

“While her being found safe and well is a relief for everyone involved, the potential for tragedy was huge.

“We’re urging people suffering medical conditions to be open and honest.”
