A 23-year-old pipe fitter will appear before a San Fernando magistrate this morning after crashing into two police vehicles while under the influence of alcohol. The accident happened just outside the Mon Repos Police Station along the Naparima Mayaro Road, around 4.35 am on Saturday. The accused driver of William Trace, Moruga, spent the weekend in custody after being arrested and charged by WPC Figaro. 


Reports stated that the man was driving a grey Nissan Cifero, heading west when he smashed into a new police SUV, which was parked in front the station. The impact caused the police vehicle to collide with another parked police vehicle. The suspect and two other occupants, ages 25 and 23, of Pleasantville and Lower Hillside, respectively sustained no serious injuries in the crash.  He was issued a breathalyser test and police said he had exceeded the legal limit for alcohol consumption while driving.
