18yo in Tenterfield court

AN 18-year-old Tenterfield man has pleaded guilty to high-range drink- driving in his first court appearance since being charged in October.

Travis Webster appeared at Tenterfield Local Court last week where he entered pleas for several charges relating to a car crash that left two people injured.

Webster was arrested by New England police on October 23, after allegedly crashing a car carrying five passengers into a tree.

Police allege the 18-year-old red P-plater fled from the scene following the accident at 9.50pm on the Leechs Gully Rd which left one of the passengers with whiplash and another with a suspected broken jaw and finger.

When police caught up with Webster, he was taken to Tenterfield Police Station where he returned a breath analysis result of 0.151.

Last Wednesday Webster pleaded guilty to the high-range drink-driving charge as well as charges of negligent driving and drive with unrestrained passengers.

He pleaded not guilty to a charge of drive in a manner dangerous.

Webster is next listed to appear in court on January 30.
