A drunk driver has wiped out a set of traffic lights, crashed into two cars and nearly entered the shopfront of a nearby restaurant at a busy Braddon intersection on Monday night (1 October).

Around 7:40 pm on Monday night, emergency services were called to a crash in Braddon after an SUV collided with two vehicles before taking out the traffic light at the corner of Cooyong Street, Genge Street and Lonsdale Street.

The vehicle narrowly missed pedestrians on the sidewalk and nearly entered the shopfront of Zeus Street Greek restaurant.

Police tested the man with a breath analysis and he returned a positive alcohol test almost four times over the legal limit.

The driver will be summonsed to appear before the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date.
