It was allegedly a drunk driver


A car smashed into East Park Terrace at Solent University last night around 8:30 p.m.

A Solent Uni student was at the scene just after the crash happened, they told The Soton Tab: "I believe he was a drunk driver.

"He got out the car after it happened and vomited everywhere before trying to leave."

"A staff member stopped him".
