Driver Who Blew 0.337 BAC Charged High Range Drink Driving

A man in Sydney’s north-west has been caught driving while almost seven times the legal blood alcohol limit.

He has since been charged with high-range drink driving after crashing his vehicle last night.

Police were called to Garfield Road East, Riverstone at about 6:15pm last night following reports of a crash.

Officers from Quakers Hill Police Area Command attended the scene and spoke with the 43-year-old driver of a Holden Commodore after he collided with another vehicle.

No one was injured in the crash and only minor damage was caused.

The 43-year-old man was given a roadside breath test, which returned a positive result. He was arrested and taken to Riverstone Police Station to undergo further breath analysis, which returned a result of 0.337.

The legal blood alcohol limit is under 0.05 for full license holders.

He was charged with drive with high range PCA – 2nd offence, and drive motor vehicle during disqualification period, and refused bail to appear at Blacktown Local Court later today.
