Teenage driver Molly Zoglowek has admitted causing the crash which left a rugby player paralysed from the neck down.
University student Zoglowek, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and drink driving on September 15, 2013 on Dursley Road, Sandpits.
Dursley Rugby Club player Rob Camm, 20, suffered neck injuries in the crash, and has been left tetraplegic.
The former Wycliffe College, Stonehouse student hopes to go to university this Autumn.
Zoglowek’s grey Mitsubishi Shogun Pinin left the road and crashed at Sandpits at around 4.50am.
The 19-year-old of Leaside Close in Cam appeared dressed in a black suit at Gloucester Crown Court on Friday, March 21 to enter her pleas.
Prosecutor Julian Kesner said time was needed to get a latest victim impact statement and up to date information on the injuries sustained.
Judge Jamie Tabor QC said: “This is the type of offence that sadly leaves an awful toll of unhappiness behind.
“She is a young woman who has done a terrible thing and made a terrible mistake.”
Judge Tabor said Zoglowek would not benefit from a pre-sentence report or working with the probation service.
He warned her: “I am afraid you will have to prepare yourself for the worst.”
As well as playing for Dursley RFC, Rob was a keen rower at school.
He is still being treated in a spinal unit in Salisbury, but friends told the Gloucester Citizen last month that he had not let his situation get him down.
Many friends and family including Wycliffe College are holding a wide range of fundraising events, with the aim of hitting a £20,000 target to help him to live with the injuries he has suffered.
