Woman busted allegedly 9x the alcohol limit after crashing car

A WOMAN has been caught allegedly driving her car while almost nine times the legal limit after crashing into a fence in NSW.

The 34-year-old was arrested about 2.30pm on Sunday after police received reports a Suzuki Swift had crashed into a fence in Cringila, just south of Wollongong.

Upon arrival at the scene, officers subjected the woman to a roadside breath test which returned a positive result.


She was taken to Port Kembla Police Station where she provided an alleged breath analysis reading of 0.432, which is almost nine times the legal alcohol limit.

The woman has since been charged with drive with high range PCA and is due to appear in Port Kembla Local Court on Wednesday 7 August.
