POLICE have said it is a "miracle" a drink-driver walked away after a crash on the A34. 

Thames Valley Police shared this picture of a turned-over crumpled car on the northbound lanes in Marcham, near Abingdon this morning.

Blue lights can be seen illiminated in the dark night with a group of firefighters huddled around the blue Fiat Punto. 

In a stark warning, they wrote: "The dangers of drink driving summed up in one picture. 

"The young driver failed a roadside breath test. Enquiries are ongoing whilst they recover in hospital. It's a miracle he walked away."
