Barrow motorist's fibromyalgia 'prevented her from taking breathalyser test'
A WOMAN who crashed into a terraced house causing a gas pipe to burst said she was unable to give a breath sample because she suffers from fibromyalgia.
Tracey Killip was seen crashing her Mercedes into the property in Westmorland Street in Barrow by one of her neighbours.
After the crash in the early evening of February 15, police were called and Killip was arrested.
At South Cumbria Magistrates’ Court yesterday, prosecutor Pam Ward said Killip had managed to give a breath sample at the roadside.
Defence solicitor Mike Graham explained Killip, of Westmorland Street, suffered from tiredness and muscle fatigue as a result of her fibromyalgia.
