A woman who was killed in a shocking head-on collision on Sydney Harbour Bridge last week had been due to face court over claims she had attempted to snatch a $3000 Louis Vuitton handbag from a 62-year-old woman in 2018.
The Daily Telegraph has reported that the woman, Nicole Green, 35, had also recently pleaded guilty to helping another man rob a car owned by a university student.
Police documents state that she had used a Taser gun to incapacitate the car owner prior to the December 2018 robbery.
Ms Green – seen here in images from her Facebook page – was killed instantly when her Mitsubishi Mirage collided head-on with a black BMW around 7.15am last Thursday.
The two passengers in Ms Green’s car at the time of the bridge collision were taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital for treatment.
Police believe Ms Green’s vehicle crossed two lanes of traffic before colliding with a southbound vehicle on the bridge.
“I have seen footage of the incident, and that’s how it appears in the early stages,” said NSW Police Acting Superintendent, Paul Dunstan.
The crash sparked morning peak hour chaos for commuters, with hundreds of cars backed up either side of the famous bridge as police and emergency crews worked to free injured passengers.
