A Hamilton woman has admitted driving her car at a man and hitting him before driving off a cliff into the Waikato River.

Annette Kaye Wallis, 45, originally pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted murder and wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm on November 17, last year.

However, in the High Court at Hamilton this morning Wallis pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

Wallis drove her car at her partner outside a dairy at the Ohaupo Rd shops before fleeing down Cobham Dr and off a cliff into the river.

Justice Fogarty convicted Wallis and remanded her in further custody for sentencing in October.

He also issued a first strike warning.

The attempted murder charge will be withdrawn at sentencing.
