A man has been charged after being caught more than six times over the limit near Newcastle.
Emergency services were called to Nelson Bay Road at Fern Bay at about 1:50pm yesterday following reports a Suburu Tribeca had hit a brick fence.
The 47-year-old male driver was assessed by NSW Ambulance Paramedics but was uninjured.
Traffic and Highway Patrol officers attended the scene as well and breath tested the man who returned a positive result.
He was arrested and taken to Raymond Terrace Police Station where a secondary breath test returned an alleged reading of 0.316.
The man was issued a Court Attendance Notice for drive with high range PCA and his NSW drivers licence was suspended.
He will appear at Raymond Terrace Local Court in June.
