By Shepparton News

A 20-year-old Kialla woman's driver's licence has been suspended after she was detected allegedly driving at more than four times the legal blood alcohol limit in Shepparton.

Police were called to a Wyndham St fast-food outlet following reports of a collision about 10.25 pm Tuesday.

Police were told the driver's vehicle collided with an unknown object which caused one of the vehicle's front tyres to come off the rim, before colliding with a parked car.

The woman returned a positive preliminary breath test before undergoing an evidentiary test, which showed an alleged blood alcohol concentration of 0.215.

The woman's licence was suspended for at least 12 months and her car was impounded with costs of $1240.

She is expected to be charged with drink-driving offences.
