A woman accused of leading gardaí on a high-speed chase in Dublin has been further charged with endangerment and additional counts of dangerous driving.

Gemma Greene, from Bunratty Road, Coolock, Dublin, is due back in court in June when a book of evidence is due to be served on her.

On March 1st, up to 20 garda cars and a helicopter were involved in the pursuit of a 151 white Mercedes on the M50.

The chase was livestreamed and the car was eventually stopped in Ballymun.

The 24-year-old dubbed ‘M50 woman‘ by a tabloid newspaper was initially charged with two counts of dangerous driving, but Judge Treasa Kelly was told today that she’s now facing a total of eleven counts of the offence as well as attempted criminal damage and a charge of engaging in conduct which created substantial risk of death or serious injury to another.

When asked why stricter bail conditions were again being sought, the judge was told that Ms. Greene allegedly indicated her plans to leave the country on social media.

Her solicitor objected and questioned the authenticity of the accounts, but Judge Kelly did impose the stricter conditions, which include a curfew, due to the new charges and the decision to try her before a higher court.
