Drunk Driver Heywood

Lucky to be alive

Driving along Mt Clay Road Heywood, a drunk driver lost control of his car on a left hand sweeping bend.

His vehicle rolled three or four times before landing on its roof in nearby bushland.

The accident happened just before 5pm Monday afternoon.

The driver, from Tyrendarra, was able to free himself via the car window.

A passerby noticed a small fire, pulled over and drove the man to Heywood Police Station.

The man in his 40s had a blood alcohol reading of .118.
