A man was arrested on Thursday night on suspicion of drink-driving after coming off the road and smashing into telephone pole. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The crash happened on the A451 Mold Road Hendre just before 11pm. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Police closed the road just between Lloyds Terrace and Mill Terrace asking driving to find alternative routes following the crash. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The silver Vauxhall Vivaro appears to have come off the road just after a bend along the A451 destroying a telephone pole, flowerbeds and fencing on the driveway of a nearby house. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The driver wasn’t injured in the crash police say but added his van was a right off. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Police said on twitter the driver of the van blew 85mcg of alcohol in 100ml of breath – over twice the legal limit of 35mcg. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The man was bailed to appear in court at a later date. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
