Court date for alleged drink-driver who fled scene

A drink-driver allegedly almost three times over the legal limit crashed his car and fled before later being arrested, police say.

Senior Sergeant Craig Dinnissen said the man left a Green Island tavern yesterday evening.

His vehicle drifted, hit a median strip before the driver lost control of it and hit a power pole.

Inso Dinnissen said the driver ran from the car but was found by police about 11pm with a breath alcohol level of 1176mg.

The legal limit for a driver over 20 is 400mg.

The man will appear in court within the next two weeks.
