Drunk woman gets in TWO car crashes on way to get a Macca’s sundae

An Aussie woman was in pursuit of a Macca's sundae when she was allegedly caught drink-driving almost five times over the legal limit, after crashing into two cars.

The 60-year-old woman was caught in her tracks by Victoria Police on Monday night at Noble Park in Melbourne.

Police officers were tending to another incident — a driver of an unregistered car on the Princes Highway — when a young woman pulled over and advised police that the woman had crashed into her car nearby.

While they were getting further details from the victim of the crash, another two-car collision occurred nearby, which involved the same 60-year-old driver.

"We're not lovin' this," Victoria Police cheekily said on their Facebook page.

After conducting a breath-test on the elderly woman, she allegedly returned a very high reading of .249.

And that's when she told police the reason for her driving was to pick up a late-night snack — a sundae from McDonalds.

Given the serious nature of the alleged offence, her licence was automatically suspended for 12 months, and her car seized for 30 days.

"She'll need to look into McDelivery on her next run," Victoria Police said on Facebook.

The 60-year-old will be charged on summons with drink driving and traffic offences.

According to 2021 data from the Transport Accident Commission, drink driving is the number one contributing factor in approximately 30 per cent of fatal crashes in Australia.

Over the last five years, one in five drivers and riders who lost their lives in Victoria were over the legal Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) limit.
