Truckie busted nearly four times over the limit
The driver of a B-Double prime mover is facing serious charges after he was caught drink driving in Warragul overnight.
Police were called to the Princes Freeway just after 10 last night after motorists called Triple Zero to report a B-Double prime mover being driven erratically.
Officers intercepted the truck near the Drouin overpass where they witnessed him knock over a number of road signs before coming to a halt.
They breath-tested the 55-year-old driver who allegedly returned a reading of .195.
Acting Sergeant Ellane Clarke from the Warragul Traffic Management Unit says the man could hardly stand.
"I attended out at the scene. He was severely affected by alcohol. He was very slurred in his speech" she told Neil Mitchell.
"He would give no explanation to us at all as to why he's done what he has done,"
"I’m just horrified to see what I saw last night. I can’t believe that someone would get behind a 68-tonne truck and drive at that limit" she said.
The man from Junction Village has had his license suspended.
He's also expected to be charged with offences including reckless conduct endangering a person.

Thank Heaven he was intercepted safely and before he killed anyone. Talk about "Death On Wheels"!David T. Wednesday 28 November, 2012 - 1:30 PM
As a driver of a bdouble vehicle I am disgusted by the actions of this person.
This is what we dont need to hear or see.
People who do this make it so much harder for the people who do the right thing.dean roberts Wednesday 28 November, 2012 - 1:22 PM
