    Katie Price rushed to hospital yesterday

    Katie Price was rushed to hospital yesterday after a dramatic 'drug and drink-drive' crash that could leave her facing jail, The Sun can reveal.

    The star, who is understood to be banned from driving, is currently in hospital after the smash.

    Police at the scene arrested the 43-year-old reality star for alleged drink-driving and she may now face jail time if charged and found guilty.

    The star is already thought to be serving a driving ban and was not due to get her licence back until 13 October this year.

    A source explained: "Katie rolled her car and was in a bad way when police arrived.

    "She's in hospital now and everyone is desperately worried about her and why she was driving."

    Bad driving past

    According to the Sentencing Council, the maximum jail-term for drink-driving is six months with an unlimited fine.

    Katie has previously been banned from driving six times in the last 10 years, with her first in 2010 after she did 83mph in a 70mph zone.

    She was off the roads for six months following the incident, and in 2012 received a 12-month disqualification after failing to respond to two speeding tickets.

    Katie then got a six-month ban in 2018 for speeding after totting up 12 penalty points.

    A year later, Katie was barred for three months after driving while disqualified in January 2019.

    Price’s latest ban was given in October 2019 for 18 months after failing to tell cops who was driving her pink Range Rover when it crashed in Bexley.

    Katie’s ban

    Katie expected to get her driving licence back in April, but was banned for a further six months following an admin bungle.

    The mum-of-five served an 18-month disqualification after withholding the identity of the driver of her pink Range Rover following a crash.

    When she rang the DVLA to arrange her new licence earlier this year she was told to serve another six months due to totting up another offence for speeding.

    However, it is believed the forms Katie needed to fill out after the conviction were sent to an old address.

    Horror crash

    The crash came just hours after Katie spoke about her difficulty visiting son Harvey at his residential college in Cheltenham because she can’t get behind the wheel.

    She explained on yesterday’s GMB: “Obviously I don’t get my licence back until December, so I can’t just whizz in the car down there and it’s not close.”
