Woman goes high-range after highway crash

A WOMAN, who crashed into a concrete barrier on the Pacific Highway south of the Big Banana allegedly returned a blood-alcohol reading of 0.199.

Police received a number of complaints about a car travelling south on the Pacific Highway at Korora about 5.30pm on Sunday.

The car was seen by officers near the Big Banana when it collided with a concrete barrier, police said.

The driver, a 37-year-old woman, was detained and returned a positive roadside breath test for alcohol.

She was taken to Coffs Harbour Police Station for a breath analysis, where she allegedly returned the high range reading - almost four-times the legal limit.
