Driver arrested after car goes down embankment

A man was arrested on suspicion of impaired driving after his car went down an embankment on Harrington Sound Road.

The accident occurred around 12.30am on Saturday, near the junction with Quarry Road in Hamilton Parish.

Police spokesman: “It appears that a car was being driven along Harrington Sound Road when the driver collided with the roadside railing. The vehicle then went down an embankment.

“The car was found unoccupied with extensive front-end damage. However further inquiries located the driver, a 39-year-old St George’s man, who was apparently uninjured. He was subsequently arrested on suspicion of impaired driving.

“A court appearance is anticipated in due course.”

Five additional people were arrested on suspicion of impaired driving over the weekend, the spokesman added.

Officers also arrested 17 people for outstanding warrants and conducted liquor licence checks at premises throughout the Island.
