POLICE have confirmed that a man was arrested for driving while unfit through cannabis, following an incident in Crundale yesterday (Sunday) evening.

Dyfed-Powys Police’s Roads Policing Unit confirmed on Monday that the 24-year-old has since been released under investigation, pending further police enquiries. No charges have been made in connection with the incident.

The incident happened at around 4pm on Sunday. When a car travelling through the village came into collision with a parked vehicle and destroyed a garden wall.

Local resident Vanessa Llewelyn, well known for her work with the Maisy Moo Foundation, was just about to leave for her daughter’s house by car when the accident happened.

She had gone back to her house to check her door was locked, narrowly avoiding being in the vehicle as it was hit.

“When I went to open the door I heard a bang,” she said. “Thank god I went to check the door. Thank god no one was hurt.

“That’s the main thing a couple of minutes earlier and I would have been in the car. I feel very lucky.”

“There should be speed bumps here. Just before this happened a lady next door was dropping off her children.”

Vanessa’s neighbour Dawn Griffiths added: “I heard this explosion, it was like a bomb going off. Vanessa was crying. People walk their dogs up and down this road. People have asked the council for speed bumps but it’s not happening.

“Vanessa is very lucky.”

Police, fire fighters and paramedics were called to the incident shortly after 4pm on Sunday evening.

Firefighters made the vehicles and the area safe and provided treatment to one casualty. An ambulance and a rapid response vehicle were called to the scene by the fire service.

The driver was treated at the scene and police said that no one was seriously injured in the incident.
