Drink driver crashes car while over three times the limit

A man has lost his licence on March 4 after a vehicle collision in Port Pirie West overnight.

Just after 7.30pm on Thursday, patrols were called to a crash on Federation Road, where a Holden sedan had left the road and collided with a fence.

The driver, a 33-year-old Port Pirie West man, was breath tested and returned an alleged blood alcohol reading of 0.169 - more than three times the legal limit.

He was reported for drink driving and aggravated due care and will be summonsed to appear in court at a later date.

His vehicle was also impounded for 28 days and he was issued with an immediate 12 month loss of licence.
