A Maddingley man has been arrested overnight after a bizarre incident on the Western Freeway – and blowing more than twice the legal blood-alcohol limit.

Police were called to the Western Highway at Hopetoun Park after a white Holden Commodore collided with a black Nissan sedan around 11.20pm (Friday).

Luckily, no one was injured

A short time later the Commodore was then seen continuing west-bound in the east-bound lanes.

Police located the vehicle and tried intercepting the car at Pentland Hills when the driver lost control and hit the barriers.

The 37-year-old was arrested at the scene in relation to conduct endangering life and returned an evidentiary breath test result of .108.

He is assisting police with enquiries.
