He hit the barrier and the car ended up in a ditch.

He then fled the scene.

While the police were clearing up the wreckage, the 18-year-old returned with a family member. The police took his license and carried out a blood test. He was found to be unsafe to drive.

It’s estimated he caused tens of thousands of francs of damage – and the car is a write-off.
