“The driver of the Volvo's judgement was clouded by alcohol so much that she pulled out in front of the Skoda up at Silkstone, Barnsley.

“3 times the legal limit. Fortunately no major injuries. #fatal4 #dontdrinkanddrive," the spokesman said on Twitter.

The drink drive limit for England, Wales and Northern Ireland is 35 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath.
