Man in crash allegedly three times over alcohol limit

A MAN will have to face court after allegedly returning a blood alcohol reading more than triple the legal limit after crashing his car on Main St at Ghost Hill on Wednesday night.

A Hervey Bay police spokesman said officers, who went to the crash about 8.30pm, found the driver trapped in the vehicle which was on its side.

The man was freed from the vehicle and transported to Hervey Bay Hospital for treatment for injuries.

After this, the man was taken to the police station for a breath test, the spokesman said.

Even with the amount of time that had passed at the hospital, the man's alcohol reading was alleged to still be over 0.150, the high alcohol limit.

The man was given a notice to appear in Hervey Bay Magistrates Court, the spokesman said.
