Updated: Motorist in court
after Burnham-On-Sea road crash
motorist was arrested for drink driving and vehicle theft after this accident closed a busy Burnham-On-Sea
road early on Sunday morning (August 22nd).
Police temporarily closed Stoddens Road after a black Ford Fiesta
careered off the roadway into a ditch at 5.40am near the entrance to the
town's BASC sports ground.
Police spokeswoman Cath Foster confirmed to Burnham-On-Sea.com that a 22-year old man from Highbridge had appeared in court today (Monday) charged with drink driving, driving without insurance or tax, plus theft of a motor vehicle and the burglary of a property.
The badly damaged vehicle was lifted out of the ditch by a vehicle
rescue service mid-morning, allowing the road to re-open. An ambulance was called to the scene but neither of the two people inside suffered serious injuries.
Officers asked anyone who saw the incident to contact Crimestoppers
on 0800 555 111.
