Some cars these days are pretty clever. Did you know that some can even phone police automatically to let us know you’ve crashed?! That’s a really good safety feature especially as the driver was drunk and was arrestted by police at the scene, “It is however a really bad feature to have if you’re a drink driver. “That’s right, you’re picking this up correctly – a CAR phoned us to let us know about a crash when it turned out the driver was drunk.” Police are still dealing with the aftermath of the collision. Those onboard the second vehicle are not thought to be seriously hurt
