A Cranbourne West man has been arrested after he struck three police cars with his vehicle in Frankston early on Sunday 3 July.

Officers were notified by a traffic camera operator that a vehicle was doing burnouts on Frankston-Dandenong Road, near the Peninsula Link south-bound on-ramp, about 3.40am.

When police arrived, the P-plater allegedly reversed into a police vehicle before losing control and hitting another two police cars.

The 21-year-old man was arrested and underwent a breath-test where he allegedly returned a reading of 0.115.

A small amount of cocaine was also located in the man’s badly damaged vehicle.

He was charged with 11 offences including reckless conduct endangering life, recklessly endangering emergency service workers by dangerous driving, drink driving and intentional loss of traction.

No one was injured during the incident.
