A motorist in Sleaford has been charged with drink driving following a collision on Thursday evening.
The arresting officer said the driver was on their way to pick up their child.
In a Twitter post, Pc Jimmy Conway from Lincolnshire Police, wrote: "I have one arrested for drink drive tonight after a collision. On their way to pick up their child… Charged."
If drink driving leads to death, an offender can be jailed for up to 14 years.
Some people caught drunk behind the wheel who have not had an accident can still be charged £2,500, lose their licence and potentially face a spell behind bars of up to six months.
