Drink-driver crashes into cars in car park

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

AT 2PM last Wed­nes­day, po­lice were called to a traf­fic crash within the Whit­sun­day Shop­ping Cen­tre car park.

On ar­rival, they found a 57-year-old lo­cal woman who had run into two other parked cars.

The woman was breathal­ysed and re­turned a read­ing of 0.17 per cent, which is more than three times over the le­gal limit.

She was charged with a high range drink-driv­ing of­fence and is ex­pected to ap­pear in the Proser­pine Mag­is­trate’s Court at a later date.

The ac­ci­dent hap­pened dur­ing a fire drill at the shop­ping cen­tre and was there­fore wit­nessed by a large num­ber of shop­pers and staff.
