A police dog has been praised after finding a drunk driver who allegedly fled the scene of a road traffic collision.

Essex Police dog, PD ‘Mitch’, and handler were called to the scene of the collision yesterday evening (7th December) after a vehicle struck another one before the driver of the out-of-control car fled the scene.

The vehicle was found abandoned a short distance away.

It did not take long for PD Mitch to sniff out the driver, who was arrested – without incident – for drink driving and for failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

Thankfully, the occupants of the vehicle that the drunk driver struck were not seriously hurt.
