A 'DANGEROUS' drink-driver has avoided jail after crashing into three cars while over the limit.

Police were called to Chester Road in Winsford at around 3.30pm on June 2 last year following a collision between a Skoda Fabia and parked Peugeot 206.

Glynn Evans, who was driving the Skoda, was given a breath test at the roadside, which he failed before being taken taken into custody.

While dealing with the incident, officers were made aware Evans had crashed into two Vauxhall Corsas earlier in Delamere Street. On both occasions he had failed to stop and made off at speed. 

Following his arrest and due to potential injuries sustained in the collision, the 33-year-old was taken to hospital where he underwent a blood test.

The test returned a result showing Evans had 137 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of his blood. The legal limit is 80. 

Evans, of Mather Drive, Rudheath, was charged with dangerous driving, drink-driving and failing to stop after a collision. He pleaded guilty to all three on November 30.

Appearing at Warrington Magistrates Court for sentencing on January 3, Evans was handed a 26-week jail term, suspended for 24 months.

The court heard the sentence could be suspended due to the defendant 'having a realistic prospect of rehabilitation'.

Evans was also ordered to complete 200 hours of unpaid work, to be completed within 12 months.

The bench also disqualified him from driving for 16 months, starting from the date of his interim ban handed down on November 30.

He must also pat court costs of £120 and a £154 surcharge.
