A Sydney learner driver will face court after police said he made a “series of wrong decisions” leading to him impaling his car on a metal railing.

The man, 21, crashed a Toyota Prado on Elizabeth Drive at Bonnyrigg on Friday at about 6.15pm.

Police said the driver “made a series of wrong decisions that resulted in his vehicle becoming impaled on the centre divide fence”.

It’s alleged he was driving without a supervisor, had been drinking and the Toyota was uninsured.

“He provided a positive roadside breath test, and subsequently was arrested and conveyed to the police station, returning a reading of 0.136,” police said.

“As a learner driver, he is required to maintain a zero-blood alcohol content.”

His licence was suspended immediately and he was issued with a notice to attend court.

Remarkably, no one was injured in the crash.

On Facebook, people called it “an expensive lesson”.

“At least he's alive and able to hopefully learn from his poor decision making,” one man wrote.

Another man wrote he hopes this could be a “turning point” for the man involved.

“Time will tell,” he wrote.
