A man was charged after drinking more than six times the statutory alcohol limit after a collision at a crowded intersection in western Sydney.
At around 3:20 pm on Wednesday, emergency services arrived following reports of a single vehicle collision at the intersection of Penrith’s Mulgoa and Briky Street.
Police found that a Ford Falcon sedan installed a median strip and collided with a road sign.
The 31-year-old driver at Glenmore Park was allegedly given a positive result after being given a roadside breath test.
He was arrested and taken to the Penrith Police Station, where he conducted another breath analysis. It is said to have returned a positive measurement of 0.313, which is more than 6 times the legal limit.
His license was immediately suspended and confiscated.
He was charged with long-distance drunk driving, negligent driving (not death or serious physical harm), and used an unregistered class A car on the road.
The man was given conditional bail to appear in the Penrith District Court on January 11.
