The father of a Hawke's Bay girl who survived a deadly crash caused by drink-driving has himself been convicted of driving with excess blood alcohol.



Gerald Blaise Beach's daughter, Jordyn, was the third teenager flung out of a van, over a bridge railing and into the Tutaekuri River in October 2009 - and the only one to survive the 15m fall.



At the time of the accident, Mr Beach, 45 said parents played an important role in ensuring their children did not get in cars with intoxicated drivers.



"I asked a group of them who came here, what would you have done to make it different? I said, would you call your parents [to come and get you]? They all said no, they were scared of their parents getting grumbly. So I think it comes back to us parents," he was quoted as saying.

Mr Beach was stopped by police on McHardy Road, Havelock North about 1.25am on January 28. Breath procedures and blood tests were carried out, and Mr Beach returned a blood alcohol level of 118mgs per 100mgs of blood.



The legal limit is 80mgs.



He was convicted in Hastings District Court and on March 29 was ordered to pay a $450 fine, court costs of $132.89, medical expenses and analyst fees of $212.39. He was disqualified from driving for six months.



Mr Beach declined to comment yesterday.



In the accident in 2009, Jordyn Beach was one of seven teenage passengers of a van driven by a 16-year-old learner driver 3 times over the then youth drink-driving limit.



The van swerved on the bridge on State Highway 50 near Taradale, and collided head-on with a car.



Jordyn and Max Harman and Robert Waikari, both 17, were thrown over the bridge railing into the Tutaekuri River. The two young men were killed, and Jordyn sustained injuries including a broken arm, a gash to her head and bruising to her legs. Other passengers were also injured. The driver, Tuoho Marire Ta Moko Tini Christy, pleaded guilty to two counts of manslaughter.
