Police have released shocking CCTV footage of drink driver in a collision in Hemel Hempstead, to show the dangers of being over the limit.

Here is the shocking moment a drink driver crashes his car in Hemel Hempstead.

"He not only put his own life at risk but also the life of his two passengers," PC Daniel Webb from Herts Police said.

"His reckless behaviour could also have put other road users and wider members of the public at risk of serious injury or even death."


In the CCTV footage, you can see the car leaving the ground and then crashing through barriers into a car park after it missed a turn at the junction with Swallowdale Lane.

PC Webb added: "Any amount of alcohol will negatively affect your ability to drive. We advise that if you're drinking, even just one, please don't drive. Instead arrange for an alternative way to get home."

Ross Edmonds, aged 26 and of Bowmans Court in Hemel Hempstead, narrowly avoided jail with a custodial sentence - after he pleaded guilty to dangerous driving, drink driving and failing to stop at the scene of an accident recently.
