The operator of a snow plough truck in the canton of Graubünden was forced to give up his driver's licence after being caught driving while drunk.

The truck collided with an oncoming car on a road in the community of Lanquart on Monday evening, cantonal police said on Tuesday.

The blade of the snow  plough damaged the entire length of the car, police said.

The driver of the car was taken to Graubünden cantonal hospital for a checkup.

Police immediately seized the snow plough truck driver’s licence after he failed a breath test because of earlier alcohol consumption.

He was then subjected to a blood test.

An investigation was launched into the accident.
