Suspected drink driver arrested after Sealand Road crash
This is the aftermath of a crash which happened on Sealand Road in the early hours of Saturday morning.
The driver of one of the cars has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving after failing a roadside breath test.
Police have said there were no injuries luckily.
Officers from Cheshire police posted a picture of the crash on social media, just after 1am.
It happened on the Chester bound side of Sealand Road at the junction with Bumpers Lane and the A5480 – Deva Link.
Cheshire Police Taskforce shared the photo of the shocking collision and wrote on Twitter:
“D block Task Force officers out tonight in and around the county, just dealing with a collision where the driver responsible for this was arrested over the limit for alcohol and will now face the consequences. Luckily there were no injuries. Don’t drink and drive!”
Cheshire Police like their counterparts in North Wales are running a drink-drive campaign during the festive period.
Last Christmas, 157 people were arrested for drink driving and a further 86 for drug driving in Cheshire.
Superintendent Jo Marshall-Bell, Cheshire police’s taskforce lead, said:
“The amount of people that think they are safe to drive after a couple of drinks because they don’t ‘feel’ affected by the alcohol is astonishing.
Even just one drink can impact your ability to deal with common place events on the roads – such as a change in driving conditions, or actions taken by other road users.
Anything can change in a blink of an eye, and if you have had a drink, you won’t be in the best possible position to react to that change – and that can ultimately be the difference between life and death.”
North Wales Police targeted drivers in Deeside this week as the Christmas Anti-Drink & Drug Drive Campaign continues.
Over 50 drivers were stopped at a ‘checkpoint’ along Chester Road East in an early morning operation.
Police say all those tested at the roadside gave negative readings.
