A 26-year-old motorist has been banned for nearly two years, after being caught while almost twice the drink-drive limit after a crash.
Police were called shortly before 11.50pm on Tuesday, August 10, following reports of a single vehicle collision in Wharfedale in Carlton Colville, where a silver BMW left the road and crashed into a property.
The driver, Kurtis Galyer, of Sheraton Drive, Grimsby, fled the scene but was located by officers in a nearby street where he failed a roadside breath test.
He was then taken to James Paget Hospital, having sustained serious injuries.
Police later obtained a blood sample for analysis which found a result of 159mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood – the legal limit being 80mg.
Galyer was subsequently charged with driving a motor vehicle when above the prescribed alcohol limit.
He appeared before Great Yarmouth Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, February 9, 2022, where he pleaded guilty to the offence.
