A Top End truckie who drank VB for seven hours before crashing his ute across Albury was so drunk he couldn't understand police.
It was no surprise that he was ultimately more than six times over the legal limit.
The 44-year-old collided with a four-wheel-drive and later, another ute on the Hume Freeway and also crashed into roadside barriers and a transport company's fence.
Cameron Jeffery Taylor's foolish day of downing grog before going for a drive now has him facing sentence in Albury Local Court on April 1.
Taylor failed to stop after any of the incidents except the last, when his ute bounced off the other ute - for a second time within a few seconds - and off the freeway.
Other motorists called police and pointed him out when they arrived a few minutes later.
Police gave him a preliminary breath test, which was positive for a reading of 0.338.
His later breathalyser reading was 0.304.
MORE COURT STORIES:
Taylor pleaded guilty to a second offence of driving with a high-range prescribed concentration of alcohol, not give particulars to other driver and two counts of not give particulars to owner of damaged property.
Court papers listed Taylor as coming from the Darwin suburb of Stuart Park, though he had been living more recently in Albury.
Taylor began drinking VB stubbies at home on November 6 at 8am, before heading to Brady's Hotel that afternoon.
About 3.15 he got into his ute and drove off, but soon crashed into the back of a four-wheel-drive near the intersection of Atkins and East streets.
Taylor also crashed into a metal fence at Border Express, then 15 minutes later was seen trying to overtake another ute on the freeway.
He couldn't manage the manoeuvre, colliding with the front of another ute as he switched to the left lane.
Taylor lost control and collided again with the ute, then hit a road-side barrier.
Arresting police said Taylor was "very unsteady and required police assistance just to stand" and had "very slurred speech to the point of being incomprehensible"
