Bikers shock reading after traffic crash

A Gladstone man involved in a traffic crash was almost three times over the legal drinking limit.

Police were called to a crash on October 4 last year at Ann Street, but on arrival couldn’t find anyone.

They later located Scott Michael Stanton-Cook who said he’d driven home on his motorbike and moved it from the collision to his home.

He provided a positive breath test and due to injuries he was taken to Gladstone Hospital.

Further tests showed a blood alcohol concentration of 0.142.

Stanton-Cook pleaded guilty in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Monday to drink-driving.

The 32-year-old said he hadn’t driven since the accident.

He was fined $1100 and disqualified from driving for eight months.

A conviction was recorded.
