A woman who allegedly sped through a crash scene where an ambulance officer was seriously injured has appeared in court.

The head-on crash between an ambulance and a ute happened just before 5am on October 10 in Oldbury, causing life-threatening injuries to 33-year-old father-of-three Wesley Ackerman.

His colleague Sharron Price, who was driving the ambulance, also suffered minor injuries.

Roadblocks were in place after the crash, but Sally May O'Keefe allegedly sped through the area just before 8.30am, disturbing debris and forcing police officers to move out of the way.

Police said the 42-year-old woman to stop at the scene but her car was later stopped in Fremantle that afternoon, with a search revealing drugs inside the car, which was impounded.

O'Keefe appeared in Fremantle Magistrates Court on Monday charged with offences including reckless driving, unauthorised entry into a police forensic area, failing to obey an order by a police officer, and possession of prohibited drugs.

She was granted bail to appear in court on December 2.

The driver of the ute, a 32-year-old man from Oldbury, has been charged with dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm and dangerous driving occasioning bodily harm.

He is due to appear in Armadale Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
