After a collision in western Sydney, the man is alleged to have blown six times the legal limit.

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.
