Early Sunday morning, police attended the scene on Playford Avenue, with officers alleging the driver hit a parked car and fled.

A 22 year old Whyalla Stuart man was located nearby, who recorded a blood alcohol reading of 0.182 and was reported for drink driving, leaving the scene of an accident and driving without due care.

His vehicle was impounded for 28 days, issued with a 12 month instant loss of licence and will be summoned to appear in court at a later date.
