Man rolls car, allegedly four times over the limit
A MUNDUBBERA man has been charged with high-range drink-driving after allegedly being more than four times the legal blood alcohol limit when he rolled his car.
A blood sample analysis taken after the crash returned a reading of 0.201, more than four times the legal blood alcohol limit.
The sample was taken from the 61-year-old driver after he rolled his vehicle on Mundubbera Durong Rd on March 21.
Emergency services were called to the scene of the crash at 6pm.
The man sustained non-life threatening injuries in the rollover, according to police.
The man’s licence was immediately suspended and he has been issued with a notice to appear in Gayndah Magistrates Court.
Mundubbera officer in charge Sergeant Dan Clarke said he wanted to remind drivers that this behaviour was not acceptable, and police were still out in force on the region’s roads, despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Queensland police can still conduct roadside breath tests during this time,” Sgt Clarke said.
“Drink-driving will not be tolerated.”
This incident followed a crash on March 11, involving a 29-year-old Monto woman who allegedly blew 0.186 after flipping her car on the Burnett Highway with her children in the vehicle.
