Mr Johnson, of Barton Road in Newport, will now appear before the Isle of Wight Magistrates Court on 21st September accused of driving a vehicle when alcohol level above limit.
As first reported by Island Echo, emergency services were called to Rowborough Lane at just before 15:15 following reports of a van crashing head-on into a bridge.
The Isle of Wight Ambulance Service responded to the scene and soon requested the attendance of Police, who went on to breathalyse the 40-year-old driver at the roadside. He was subsequently arrested and taken into custody at Newport Police Station.
Thankfully no other persons were involved in yesterday’s collision, which has left Johnson’s white Citroen Belingo van with heavy front end damage.
