Almost 9 times too much to drink, novice driver misses a turn and crashes

A car was found in the bushes on Saturday night at the point where the A16 highway turns into the A58 towards Tilburg. The car was driven by a drunk man who only died after having a short driving licence. He missed the turn and crashed.

The driver had a blood alcohol level of almost 1.95, a test showed. That is almost nine times above the limit. He had to have his driver’s license and also surrender it.

‘A miracle’
“It’s a miracle that he missed all the big trees with the car,” a local police officer from Etten-Leur said on social media.
