A MAN has been charged with drink driving after a car crash in Purton.

Luke Lumsdon, of Royal Wootton Bassett, was arrested and taken to Gablecross custody after police were called to a single-vehicle accident.

The incident happened by the former Ghost Train pub on November 19. Two men were in the car.

A spokesman for Wiltshire Police said: “Only one male stayed at the scene. Ambulance assisted police by checking over the male that stayed at scene.

“Officers caught up with the other male [Lumsdon] trying to leave the Purton area on foot.

“He was identified as the driver of the vehicle involved in the RTC due to a witness giving police a description.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101.
