Kaymen Sandison drove his Ford Fiesta into the wall of one of Europe’s largest pelagic processors.

After a pub crawl celebrating his 25th birthday, a man caused thousands of pounds of damage when he drunkenly crashed his car into Northbay Pelagic, in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, reports Press and Journal.

On 2am on Sunday, December 8, Kaymen Sandison collided with the rear wall of Northbay Pelagic at the Kirk Street and St Peter Street junction in Peterhead. The wall suffered extensive structural damage, with the cost of repairs estimated as GBP 7,039.

The publication reported that trainee engineer was more than three times the alcohol limit when stopped. Sandison also made an attempt to flee the scene when police stopped him.

Police had to seal off part of the area for several hours after the crash, while Aberdeenshire Council cordoned off an area for “public safety” reasons due to the building sustaining damage.

Sandison was fined GBP 1,050 and banned from driving for 15 months when he appeared at Peterhead Sheriff Court.

The building had a devastating fire back in 2015 but was subsequently rebuilt.
