Katie Price's worried family speak out after terrifying car crash and drink-drive arrest

Katie Price ‘s worried family have spoken out about their concerns for her mental health and wellbeing following on from her arrest on suspicion of driving while above the legal limit for alcohol and drugs.

Her family released a statement on her Instagram asking for kindness and compassion as Katie goes through this hard time, acknowledging that she needs help.

Yesterday her loved ones released a statement after pictures showed her car looking very badly damaged as it lies on its side in the middle of a road.

The underneath of the car is facing the camera, and there appears to be significant damage to the front of the vehicle.

It’s completely blocking the road, lying fully across one lane and hanging over into the other one.

A firefighter can be seen in the image walking towards the car, and an emergency response vehicle with flashing lights is just about visible in the background.

The crash happened early this morning, and it was said this afternoon that mum-of-five Katie, 43, was receiving care in hospital.

A Sussex Police spokeswoman told The Mirror: “Police responded to reports of a single-vehicle collision on the B2135 near Partridge Green around 6.20am on Tuesday (September 28).

“A woman, 43, was arrested on suspicion of driving while above the legal limit for alcohol and drugs, and has been taken to hospital to be checked over.”

After her arrest, a statement was put out on her Instagram account from her family.

It read: “This message has been written by Kate’s family.

“As a family we have for some time been concerned about Kate’s wellbeing and overall mental health. Today our worst fears nearly came true. As a family we have been and will continue to help Kate get the help she needs.

“We hope that she will realise that she cannot battle her issues alone. We would kindly ask that the media and wider public give Kate the time and space she needs to seek the necessary treatment, so that she can hopefully return to the Kate we know and love as a mother, daughter and sister.

Katie Price and fiancé Karl Woods

“We are concerned and worried about her deeply, we know she lives her life publicly and to many she is fair game, but as a family we hope she can find her path privately moving forward during this very difficult period in her life.

“We are not asking for sympathy – just that it is recognised that Kate is unwell.

“We take great comfort in reading the messages of support and love for Kate that we will pass on to her, in the hope that these positive messages will help spur her on.

“It takes great strength for one to acknowledge they need help, we hope the door is now open for Kate to learn to love herself and to be happy within. Mental illness is not a personal failure.

Katie’s fiancé Karl Woods wrote in a statement: “Relationships are tested, people test each other – but when you love someone like I love Katie, you enjoy the highs and good times together, and that bond is tested during the low and difficult times together.

“Katie is a tough diamond. She has her imperfections however they make her just perfect to me, she just needs that extra help to be polished. The sunshine will shine through her once against and the sparkles that she brings to everyone will return.

“I love you Katie 100%. My Dolly. Always here, always will be”
