A man who crashed into a tram barrier in Carlton this morning has been found to be over the limit.
Police have been told the man was driving along Nicholson Street when he ran into a tram stop barrier, near Elgin Street, about 12.45am.
The 33-year-old man and his female passenger were very lucky they weren’t injured when the Mercedes AMG mounted the barrier and became stuck.
The man returned a positive breath test before furnishing an evidentiary breath test result of .127.
The Braybrook man’s licence was immediately suspended.
He is expected to be charged on summons with drink driving.
