Police say a Timboon district drink driver is lucky to be alive after plunging down a steep embankment.
South-west police road safety adviser Senior Sergeant Chris Asenjo said the driver recorded a positive preliminary breath test after losing control early Saturday morning.
He was taken to the Warrnambool police station where he recorded an evidentiary breath test of 0.109.
"There was a single vehicle collision early Saturday morning after a driver lost control on Robilliards Road at Timboon," he said.
"The dual cab utility slid down a large embankment and fortunately the driver was not injured."
The driver will be summoned to appear in court and his licence has already been suspended.
"His vehicle has not been seized by police as it looks like it's going to be a write-off," Senior Sergeant Asenjo said.
"The driver was extremely lucky his only penalty looks like being a licence suspension and a trip to court.
"He could have been killed.
"This is just another impaired driver who has been playing Russian roulette and continues a ghastly run across the south-west involving drug impaired and drinking drivers."
Senior Sergeant Asenjo said anyone with information about drug impaired or drink drivers could contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
