A drink-driver has been jailed after he crashed into two cars and hit a wall in High Wycombe earlier this month.

David Parker, 47, of no fixed abode, was more than four times the drink-drive limit when he crashed into the vehicles causing them “significant damage” and then hit a wall in West Wycombe Road at around 3.20pm on February 8.

Police said thankfully no-one was hurt in the incident.

He was believed to be driving a VW Scirocco and was arrested at the scene.

A breathalyser test revealed a reading of 156mg of alcohol in 100ml of breath, which police at High Wycombe said was the highest they had ever seen. The legal limit for drivers is 35mg.

He was also arrested in a separate incident in Grampian Way, Langley, Slough, near the M4, after another driver had reported a Vauxhall Astra driving erratically on the M40, M25 and M4 at around 1.10am on January 26.

At the time a breath test revealed Parker was more than three times the drink-drive limit, with a reading of 136mg.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of driving above the legal alcohol limit and was sentenced to 26 weeks behind bars at High Wycombe Magistrates’ Court on February 9, police confirmed today.

He was also disqualified from driving for 60 months and at the end of this period he will be required to complete an extended test.

PC Alistair Bennett, based at High Wycombe police station, said: “Parker's breath test reading of 156mg was the highest I have ever seen.

“The dangers of drink driving are well documented but Parker ignored them while putting innocent motorists and pedestrians at risk.

“It is very fortunate that no-one was injured during the collision that left three vehicles and a wall damaged.

“I want to thank the members of the public who initially detained the driver before police attendance and then provided witness accounts that led to this conviction.

“We will continue to deal with drink driving offences robustly and promote ongoing safety.”
