A NSW P-plater has pleaded guilty to drunkenly crashing his car into a camping family and causing them serious injuries.
Alexander Louis-Renshaw, 20, of Balgownie, slammed into a tent in which a family of four, including two children, were sleeping in a caravan park in the south coast town of Kiama in September last year.
The P-plater had been drinking alcohol prior to the crash.
Fellow campers tried to free the family, who were all injured.
Louis-Renshaw appeared in Wollongong Local Court last week, where he pleaded guilty to high-range drink-driving, two counts of aggravated dangerous driving causing grievous bodily harm and two counts of causing bodily harm by misconduct.
The family, from the NSW Snowy Mountains town of Dalgety, had been on a camping holiday when the crash occurred.
The mother, 42, suffered a collapsed lung, spinal injuries and rib damage, while the father, 45, suffered a fractured pelvis.
Their seven-year-old daughter was taken to hospital with chest injuries and her four-year-old brother had injuries to both legs.
Magistrate Michael Stoddart adjourned the matter for a sentence hearing at Wollongong District Court on March 15.
