Drunk driver loses licence after crashing into fence

DAVID Keith Bromilow told Magistrate Mark Morrow he could not remember exactly what happened when he ran off the road and crashed into a fence on January 26.

"That was probably because you were too drunk," Mr Morrow said in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Monday.

Bromilow appeared in court charged with driving without due care and attention, driving while on a suspended licence and drink driving.

That night he had a blood alcohol reading of 0.172, more than three times the legal limit.

Bromilow admitted to police he had been drinking double shots of Jack Daniel's whisky before driving.

He was fined $1200 and his licence was further disqualified for two years and nine months.
