“This was the scene our Specials were met with,” said a Cambridgeshire police spokesperson posting a photo to their Facebook page.
The officers came across the crashed car “when they were called out to a collision in Cardea on Friday evening where it was suspected the driver was drunk.
“The driver was arrested and later charged with drink driving after he blew 99 in a roadside breath test – the legal limit is 35!!”
