The Colombo bound double cab driven by the MP had skidded off the road causing damage to a telephone post near the National Apprentice and Industrial Training Authority (NAITA) around 12.30am yesterday.
He was released on police bail. The damaged party vehicle is in police custody and Welikada police are conducting the investigations. MP Herath said that an attempt was being made to tarnish his image.
