The English actress and former wife of British actor Dennis Waterman had been on a drive just earlier this week on Monday (23.02.16) in Twickenham and what happened, she flipped her car as she ploughed into a parked car as her three-year-old grandson as in the back seat. She is also known as a former star of the British Soap the ‘EastEnders’.
According to an eye-witness Paul Mayhew, 54,
told The Sun newspaper: ”The Mini hit the back of another car, pushing it onto the kerb, and it ended up on its side.
”A lot of people stopped and tried to help. As a result of the accident, the Mini’s ignition was killed, the doors were locked and the windows were powered up, so we couldn’t get in. It took quite a long time to get the woman calm.
”There was a child in a car seat in the back. Once we got them out we rolled the car back on its wheels. The woman was very shaky. The child was fine.”
Lenska, sixty-eight years old had been arrested
for driving with excess alcohol in her system following a breath test.
She was charged and bailed the following day and is scheduled to appear at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on March 10.
More on the star, she had two failed marriages.
