Man 'crashes into fence post while drink driving'

A 23-YEAR-OLD man allegedly crashed into a fence post and ripped it out of the ground while drink driving at Allora.

Acting Sergeant Matt Shield said the man had been at a pub and driven to get takeaway when he crashed into the post on Wilson Ln.

Speed was also allegedly a factor in the crash, which occurred about 5.30pm on Monday evening.

Acting-Sgt Shield said the Allora man was the only occupant in the vehicle at the time of the crash but did not sustain any injuries.

He was taken to Warwick Police Station and allegedly recorded a blood alcohol concentration of 0.13.

The man was charged with drink driving and is scheduled to appear at Warwick Magistrates Court on June 6.

Acting-Sgt Shield said the traffic crash was still under investigation.
