Driver ends up in ditch after driving whilst twice over the legal limit

Police in Mid Ulster are warning of the dangers of drink driving after one vehicle went off the road into a ditch in Caledon over the weekend.

The driver was found to be driving whilst twice over the legal limit.

It comes on the weekend that the Department for Infrastructure released statistics on KSI (killed or seriously injured) casualties across Northern Ireland which highlighted car drivers accounted for the largest proportion of KSIs for both males (37%) and females (41%).

Police located a further two people on the same evening who tested positive for drink driving.

A Facebook post by Mid-Ulster PSNI thanked those who assisted saying “Thank you to helpful members of the public who give us information about this type of crime and assist in saving lives”!
