Two men have been reported after a car crashed into a hotel in Bordertown.
At about 5.08am on Sunday, August 11, residents of the East Terrace hotel were woken to the sound of a Holden ute crashing into the front of the hotel.
The driver was seen by witnesses getting out of the ute to inspect the damage before reversing the ute out of the hotel and driving off. Police arrived a short time later and located a registration plate amongst the damage. There was extensive damage to the verandah, but no one was injured.
The driver of the ute returned to the hotel later that morning after being driven there by a friend, looking for the missing registration plate. The 26-year-old man from Bordertown was subsequently located by police and reported for driving without due care and breach of bail. Further charges may be laid at another date.
The friend of the driver, a 20-year-old Bordertown man was also reported for exceeding the prescribed concentration of alcohol and breaching his provisional licence, after returning a breath test of 0.063.
Both drivers will be summonsed to appear in court at a later date.
