Drunk driver 10 times over the limit

A driver who went on a birthday binge on Thursday last week was 10 times over the alcohol limit when he collided with an oncoming car in Lousada, and then crashed his car against the wall of a house at around 12.30pm as he was on his way home.

The man, who had just turned 54, was hospitalised with light injuries and a breathalyser confirmed that he had 5 grams of alcohol per litre of blood – the maximum reading that the device could provide.
