Crash damages service station

A MAN has been charged with drink driving after allegedly running his car into the front entrance of a service station.

Police said a vehicle was seen crashing into the 7-Eleven on Redbank Plains Rd, Bellbird Park, about 12.50am Monday.

The incident was first feared to have been some kind of ram raid, however subsequent investigations revealed the driver was extremely drunk.

Police allege the driver had a blood alcohol level of 0.162% - more than three times the normal legal limit.

The man has been charged with driving while under the influence of liquor and will face court at a later date.
