Man held after three-vehicle crash

A 34-year-old man was detained by police on Monday following a car crash that injured five people.

According to a police spokeswoman, officers and first responders arrived at the scene of the three-vehilce collision on Frog Lane at around 7.30pm.

“It appears that a vehicle was travelling along Frog Lane in Devonshire when it collided with two other cars in the area, one parked and one stationary,” the spokeswoman said.

“Five people suffered minor injuries and were transported to King Edward VII Memorial where they were treated and released.”

The spokesman said that one person, a 34-year-old male was arrested at the scene on suspicion of impaired driving and later failed an alco-analyser test.

The arrest was one of several that took place over the holiday weekend.

In total, nine people were arrested on suspicion of impaired driving, and 29 people were arrested for outstanding warrants.

Officers also carried out 23 liquor license checks across the Island.
