A 36-year-old driver recorded a high-range reading of 0.272 under official breath analysis after his car allegedly struck two men in the driveway of their Jerrabomberra home early on Monday afternoon.

The driver was taken to Queanbeyan police station and charged with aggravated dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm and drive high range PCA.
He was granted conditional bail and is due to appear in Queanbeyan Local Court on 26 October 2020.
