A woman drove drunk after struggling to cope with looking after her sick mum.
Maria Carr hit two parked cars when she was more than three times the legal drink-drive limit.
Her solicitor told Kirklees magistrates that caring for her mum – who has since died – caused her great stress.
Alex Bozman, prosecuting, said that police were called following the smash in Town Street, Batley on September 9.
Carr, 55, was found to have 120 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath – more than three times the legal limit of 35 mgs.
Magistrates heard that the cook, of Commonside Avenue in Batley, had no previous convictions.
Daniel Metcalfe, mitigating, said: “Her mother had Alzheimer's and that left Mrs Carr as the primary carer for her mother and caused pressure for her.
“She became dependent on alcohol and from this incident she realises that she does have a problem.
“She feels remorseful for her actions and deeply embarrassed.”
The case was adjourned for a probation report before sentencing.
