A drink driver who blew almost five times the legal alcohol limit has been jailed for a head-on smash in Wolverhampton that left another motorist with serious chest injuries.

Mantus Siskus was behind the wheel of a Ford Focus when it hit a Vauxhall Corsa in Evans Street just before 9.30pm on December 8 last year.

The 26-year-old Lithuanian national was taken from the scene on a spinal board after slamming into the windscreen.

He was breathalysed again several hours later and was still over the drink drive limit.

He admitted to dangerous driving, drink driving and driving without insurance or a valid licence and was jailed for 15 months at Wolverhampton Crown Court.
