NSW: Teenager charged over drunken crash

A TEENAGER has been charged with drink-driving following a crash at Blakehurst, in Sydney’s south, overnight.

Just after 3am, a blue Mercedes left the roadway and hit a power pole, before colliding with a Toyota Rav 4.

The Mercedes then hit and burst a water main, drove through a construction site, and came to rest at the base of a cliff face.


No one was injured in the incident.

Officers from St George Local Area Command attended and breath-tested both drivers, with the 19-year-old male driver of the Mercedes returning a positive reading.

Checks revealed the teenager’s licence was also suspended.

He was arrested and taken to Kogarah Police Station where a subsequent breath analysis gave a reading of 0.073.

The Brighton-Le-Sands man was charged with driving with a low range PCA and driving whilst suspended.

He is due to appear before Sutherland Local Court on Thursday 17 September 2015.
