PHOTOS: Alleged drink driver arrested after crash near Coffs
AN ALLEGED drink driver has been arrested after his car flipped on Waterfall Way around midnight.
The driver, aged 37, was one of two people in the Mitsubishi sedan at the time of the crash.
The incident happened on the notorious black spot road near Fernmount, and police were alerted after a passing motorist saw the wreck and rang triple-0.
The sedan had flipped on a dangerous bend in an 80km/h zone, causing the road to be partly closed for almost an hour.
Both occupants escaped serious injury and were able to extricate themselves from the wreck.
It is understood the driver, who suffered minor injuries, refused to be taken to hospital.
A breath test at the scene allegedly returned a positive result and the man was arrested and taken to Coffs Harbour Police Station.
Various alcoholic products including empty cans and bottles could be seen inside the car.
A further breath test then returned a reading of 0.113.
He was issued with a court attendance notice for mid-range PCA and negligent driving.
He was bailed to appear at Coffs Harbour Local Court on September 28.
