A DRAMATIC new picture shows how Katie Price ROLLED her BMW in a "drink and drug drive" smash in the early hours of this morning.
The Sun exclusively revealed that the 43-year-old star had been rushed to hospital after the accident, which could see her face jail time.
The new picture shows Katie's car turned on its side as it lays across the road – the mangled front crashed into some bushes.
The siren of an ambulance can been seen behind the vehicle, with it confirmed that the road was briefly closed due to the accident earlier today.
Wreckage from the car has also been pictured at the location.
Police at the scene arrested Katie, who is understood to be banned from driving, for alleged drink-driving – and she may now face jail time if charged and found guilty.
During an appearance on yesterday's Good Morning Britain, the star appeared to confirm that she is still serving a driving ban, and won't get her licence back until later this year.
A source said of today's accident: "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."
A Sussex Police spokeswoman confirmed: "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.
"The road was blocked temporarily while recovery of the vehicle was arranged."
Paramedics added that they were called to the early morning crash and took one person to hospital.
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."
Katie expected to get her driving licence back in April, but was banned for a further six months following an admin bungle.
The mother-of-five served an 18-month disqualification after withholding the identity of the driver of her pink Range Rover during 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.
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 during a crash in Bexley.
