Driver who is banned until 2038 charged with 7 offences following drink drive crash in Windsor
A man, disqualified from driving until 2038, will appear in court today – Tuesday - charged with multiple traffic offences, following a crash in Macquarie St on Monday.
About 4pm, officers from Hawkesbury Highway Patrol received reports of a fail-to-stop crash on Macquarie St, Windsor.
Police were told a Holden Commodore had crashed into the back of a ute, before driving away from the scene.
A short time later, officers found the vehicle on Mileham St, Windsor. The Holden failed to stop when directed to by police, and a pursuit began but was terminated a short time later when the Holden stopped on James Meehan St, where the 52-year-old driver was arrested.
The South Windsor resident provided a positive roadside breath test, and was taken to Windsor Police Station, where he allegedly returned a breath analysis reading of 0.219 – just under double the base high range level.
Checks revealed the man is disqualified from driving until 2038.
He was charged with drive with high range blood alcohol level, not give particulars to other driver, police pursuit – not stop – drive recklessly, drive motor vehicle during disqualification period, disobey no right turn sign and negligent driving.
The man was refused bail and will appear before Penrith Local Court today - Tuesday.
