Drunk Driver Collides with Police Patrol Vehicle

On Monday 6 November, around 1:15AM, a Firearms Response Unit vehicle, whilst on patrol in West Bay in relation to the multiple firearm-related incidents over the weekend, was involved in an MVA where the police vehicle was rear-ended by another vehicle.

One male driver was arrested on suspicion of DUI after a road side breath test was conducted with a reading of .233%.

No injuries were reported, however the incident resulted in a police vehicle on active duty during a significant crime event response being put out of service due to the actions of a drunk driver.

It is every motorists responsibility to be fit to drive when they get behind the wheel. This incident demonstrates the impact poor driving behavior can have not only on other road users, but also the wider community.
