Horrors of drink-driving: Man suffers serious injuries after crashing into a tree in Northumberland


Bot

A man suffered horrific injuries and was told he might not walk again after he got behind the wheel while over-the-limit and crashed into a tree.

Uninsured Anthony Parker had to be cut free from his vehicle and was later found to have fractured his spine, broken his ribs and ruptured his bowel, kidney, bladder and liver.

The 32-year-old had to have surgery to fit bolts into his back and spent five weeks in hospital, where he was initially told he may not walk again.

However, after months of rehab, Parker was back on his feet and appeared at South East Northumberland Magistrates' Court to plead guilty to driving with excess alcohol and without insurance.

Prosecutor, Eve McDonnell, said police arrived at the scene of the accident on the A1068 Sheepwash Road, near Sheepwash, Northumberland, at 2am on September 1 last year, having been called by paramedics.

Officers saw that Parker had misjudged a bend and ended-up crashing his Peugeot 207 into a tree.
