A woman is due to appear in court charged with drink driving after crashing into a wall in Ryde during the early hours of this morning (Friday).
The individual failed to negotiate a right hand bend at the junction of Alexandra Road and St John’s Hill, crashing her blue Suzuki into the wall of a residential property.
Police attended the scene and the driver provided a positive roadside breath test, leading to her arrest.
Shortly before 01:00 this morning, at Newport Police Station, the suspected drink driver blew 101 – the legal limit being 35.
PC Green of the Joint Operations Unit has said:
“It will never cease to amaze me that people are willing to take the risk and drink and drive. These people not only risk their own safety but all other people who are going about their daily business.
“We will continue to actively target and prosecute offenders”.
