Drunk driver, drunk pedestrian collide

A DRUNK pedestrian collided with an allegedly drunk driver in Palmerston last night.

The driver returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.169 and was also driving while disqualified. He was issued a notice to appear in court.

"The pedestrian was taken to hospital with a suspected broken arm and was cautioned for walking without due care," Cmdr Tennosaar said.
