O-Bahn bus services to the city were hit this morning after an alleged drink-driver left his Toyota utility on the tracks overnight.

The O-Bahn was closed between Tea Tree Plaza and Paradise for city-bound traffic, but normal services have since resumed after the vehicle was lifted off the rails by a crane.

Buses that use the O-Bahn in this section were forced to detour via the road network.

 

UPDATE 8:55am- normal services are resuming on the O-Bahn. We thank customers for their patience.

Police report they were called to Loch Lomand Drive, Modbury just after 2.10am after reports that a Toyota utility was stuck on the rails.

The Toyota’s owner was located walking along the tracks away from the vehicle.

Police said the Beulah Park man returned a positive alcohol reading of 0.152. He was reported for drink driving and lost his licence for 12 months.

He will be summoned to appear at the Adelaide Magistrates Court at a later date.
