Katie Price opens up about her car accident

Katie Price was seen doing community service at a Sussex charity on Wednesday after her BMW was rolled into a drink-driving accident at 5am last September.

The 43-year-old former glamor model swerved through jail and received a suspended 16-week jail sentence, 100 hours of community service and a driving ban when she was sentenced in December.

And Katie was pictured arriving at Horsham Matters – a Christian charity which acts as a crisis service providing food, fuel and shelter to people in need on Wednesday.

The foundation also offers counseling services and community lunches.

Katie cut a relaxed figure in a white tracksuit and trainers, but embellished her outfit with a Louis Vuitton shoulder bag.

She wore her blonde hair in a low ponytail and appeared in high spirits as she flashed a smile as she left the charity shop.

The reality star was not wearing her engagement ring amid ongoing speculation over whether she had split from fiancé Carl Woods, with Katie taking and removing the sparkling diamond in recent days.

During Katie’s sentencing in December, the court heard how the star had consumed cocaine, vodka and lemonade before the crash and witness Mr Marchant pulled Katie from the wreckage.

Her defense lawyer, Joe Harrington, told the judge: “She’s had a lot of personal issues recently. Currently she’s in bankruptcy proceedings so her house can be foreclosed.

“So there’s a lot going on in this lady’s life, a really tough time.”

After the accident, Katie underwent treatment at The Priory rehabilitation clinic.

She enrolled in a program at The Priory for treatment to seek help with her addiction issues under the supervision of professionals.

Katie has previously expressed deep regret over the crash admitting her actions ‘could have killed someone’.

“I got behind the wheel of the car. I regret it. I upset people around me and upset myself,” she said in a YouTube video.

“I could have been hurt or I could have been dead. I could have killed someone, or I could have hurt someone.”
