Wife runs over her husband after finding out he was having an affair with an18yearold

The mum-of-two shouted ‘She’s only 18-years-old’ before driving at her teacher husband, court heard.

Charity worker Maria Addis, 34, knocked down her husband, Mark, 37, after learning of his relationship with the teenager.

Ms Addis, of Pontypidd, South Wales, confronted her spouse of 15 years over the affair with Lucy Gill.

She was due to stand trial for dangerous driving, but changed her plea at the last moment to avoid ‘airing her dirty laundry in public’.

Speaking in Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court, Jeremy Jenkins on defence said: ‘Things got out of hand against a backdrop where Addis was seeking the truth from her husband about an extra marital affair with a former pupil. It was a misjudgement to move the car forward in the direction of her former husband.’

He added: ‘She was candid in interview and accepted that the situation got the better of her.’

A witness spotted the now estranged couple arguing, then Ms Addis is said to have pushed her ex into a bush before locking herself into the family car.

She was then seen edging forward in the vehicle, ‘nudging’ Mr Addis, who fell to the ground holding his leg.

Prosecutor Hywel Hughes said: ‘She was nudging him with the car causing him to move backwards and fall to the ground. The man was holding his left leg and groaning.’

Ms Addis admitted careless driving in May, rather than face her partner’s ‘tawdry affair’.

She was fined £500 and received seven points on her driving licence.

Judge Richard Twomlow said: ‘This incident was a stupid incident and did not bring much credit on any participant in it.’

Mr Addis and Miss Gill both declined to comment after the case.
