Driver nearly hits pedestrian, allegedly three times limit

A 66-YEAR-old female driver allegedly blew an alcohol breath test of 0.165% after being stopped in Poona.

That is more than three times the legal limit.

Police from Maryborough were called to attend an address in Poona on Sunday after a driver was observed to have swerved on the road and nearly hit a pedestrian.

She was taken to Maryborough Police Station and charged with driving under the influence of liquor.

The driver will appear in court at a later date.
