A Portland drink driver who thought he was on a different street when he crashed late Wednesday at more than four times the legal alcohol limit has been arrested.
Portland police Sergeant Ray Hasting said a single-vehicle collision happened about 10.40pm in King Street.
The 38-year-old driver thought he was in Edgar Street which goes straight through.
He was in fact on King Street which is split by a cul-de-sac between Wellington Road and Barkly Street.
The driver crashed into trees at the end of the road.
The man was arrested soon after at his home.
He returned a positive preliminary breath test and later an evidentiary test of .201.
The driver is expected to be charged on summons with drink driving and careless driving and appear in the Portland Magistrates Court at a later date.
Sergeant Hastings said that the collision must have been loud.
"We had a heap of witnesses come forward so the crash obviously caused a lot of noise," he said.
"The attending police are incredibly disappointed with this high alcohol content and are amazed that nobody was injured as a result of his actions."
Portland police are asking witnesses to the crash and/or the driver's actions at the scene to contact the station and leave their details for the investigator, First Constable Daniel Skelly.
