Man and woman who fled from crash scene with three children – including baby – arrested for drink driving

A man and woman, who ran from a crashed car with three young children in tow, have been arrested for a series of offences – including drink driving.

The pair, one of whom was carrying a baby, were spotted fleeing the scene of the collision in the area of the Brownlow Road, Craigavon.

A PSNI spokesperson commented: “Police located the two adults and children nearby. The adults were arrested on suspicion of driving whilst unfit along with a number of other driving offences.

“Thankfully the children will recover from their injuries, however, it could have been so much worse.

“It’s not thought the children had any restraints in place, 6ft to the left was a 25ft drop and 2ft left was a very large tree.

“Never ever drink and drive and never put your child’s life at risk by bringing them with you!”
