A 20-YEAR-OLD man is due to appear in court to face a string of driving offences after a car hit two lamp posts and overturned.

The Ringwood man is due before Poole magistrates on Friday May 24 after being issued with a postal requisition for offences of drink driving, drug driving, driving while disqualified and driving without insurance.

It follows an incident in Leigh Road, Wimborne just before 2am on Saturday December 15 when a blue Ford Focus left the road.

The driver of the car – a local man aged in his 20s – sustained a fractured pelvis and was taken to hospital for treatment.
