Man busted driving 6x legal alcohol limit after crashing into another vehicle

TWO men have been busted driving on NSW roads yesterday heavily intoxicated.

About 5pm a black Audi, being driven by a 44-year-old man was involved in a collision with another vehicle on Terrace Road, North Richmond.

On arrival police spoke with alleged driver who was allegedly slurring his words and appeared to be affected by alcohol.


Officers from Hawkesbury Local Area Command breath tested the man who allegedly provided a positive reading.

He was placed under arrest and taken to Windsor Police Station where he is alleged to have given a breath analysis reading of 0.317, more than six times the legal limit.

In the second incident, NSW Ambulance Paramedics alerted police to a vehicle that was allegedly swerving all across lanes and driving very slowly along Henry Lawson Drive, Milperra just after midnight (Tuesday 6 October 2015).

Police from Bankstown Local Area Command located the car and pulled it over on Henry Lawson Drive.

The 25-year-old male driver is alleged to have provided a positive roadside breath test.

He was arrested and taken to Bankstown Police Station where he allegedly provided a breath analysis reading of 0.189, more than three times over the legal limit.

Both drivers were issued Court Attendance Notices for high range drink driving, and had their licenses suspended on the spot.

Both will attend court next month.
