A 25-year-old unlicensed, uninsured careless driver who crashed his car while drunk has been banned from the road for 22 months.
Sebastian Zylka, of All Saints Road, Ipswich, pleaded guilty to drink-driving and careless driving when he appeared before the town’s South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court. Zylka also admitted driving not in accordance with a licence and driving without insurance.
He was driving a blue Mercedes C200 on January 16 on the A137 when he lost control at Wherstead.
The Mercedes crossed the white line in the middle of the road and collided with an oncoming car.
When Zylka was tested it showed he had 146 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood. The legal limit is 80mgs.
In addition to Zylka’s driving ban, magistrates gave him a 12-month community order with 80 hours’ unpaid work. He must also pay £85 costs and £85 to the victims’ fund.
