A Scammonden man has been banned from the road after crashing his Land Rover and then driving through a dry stone wall as he continued his journey.
Anthony Booth, of Quarry Field House, was found by police covered in mud and in a dazed state after walking through fields to leave the smash scene.
Kirklees magistrates heard that the 40-year-old was treated in hospital.
There tests revealed that he was more than twice the legal limit when he was behind the wheel.
The court heard that the incident happened at 10pm on October 8.
Booth left his home in his Range Rover Sport and headed onto Rochdale Road.
There he collided with an unattended Land Rover where he initially stopped before continuing onto New Hey Road.
He almost collided with another vehicle before driving through a dry stone wall into some fields.
Police and a dog handler traced him to some buildings on Green Slacks Lane in Scammonden.
Booth was described as extremely wet and cold and covered in mud.
He didn’t appear to know what was happening and an ambulance was called to take him to hospital.
Booth appeared under the influence of alcohol and he gave a blood sample during his treatment at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
This showed that the father-of-two had 170 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood.
The legal limit is 80 milligrammes.
Mike Sisson-Pell, mitigating, described his client’s drive home as the highest route in Huddersfield.
He said: “The road is twisty and on this particular evening the cloud was low and it was foggy.
“It appears he’s clipped the corner of a Land Rover, he stopped at the scene but there was nobody to report the incident to.
“So he went on his way home with the intention of calling police but his car left the road and went through a wall into a field.
“At that point he was completely disorientated and stumbled off.
“It was particularly fortunate police found him because out there above Scammonden it becomes very cold very quickly and it’s possible he could have suffered hyporthermia.”
Magistrates banned Booth from driving for 22 months.
He must also pay a £600 fine as well as £85 costs and a £60 victim surcharge.
