A woman has returned a blood alcohol reading of more than seven times the legal limit following a collision in Armadale.

The woman is believed to have hit another vehicle while doing a three point turn at a car park on Denbigh Road in Armadale about 4.40pm yesterday.

Police intercepted her vehicle a short distance away.

That’s where she allegedly returned a breath test reading of 0.361, a level that the department of health says is just shy of unconsciousness.
