Drink driver asleep at wheel A Boyup Brook man has admitted to drunkenly falling asleep while driving his vehicle late at night after an argument with a friend, causing it to smash through a school and roll on to an oval. Luke George Thomsen, 29, pleaded guilty to the drink-driving charge against him in relation to the serious crash earlier this year. While driving along Inglis Street in Boyup Brook, Thomsen fell asleep, which caused the car to leave the road at the corner of Robinson Avenue. He then crashed through a fence attached to St Mary’s Catholic School and rolled the car multiple times on to the school oval.
