31-Year-Old Man From Valleyfield Crashes Vehicle

On September 18, 2018, at approximately 6:20 p.m., St. Anthony RCMP received a report of a vehicle that was overturned and off the roadway on Route 430 near the branch to Cook’s Harbour.

Upon arrival, no one was located in or around the vehicle. Police learned that a lone man had departed the scene prior to police arrival and was dropped off at a local business in St. Anthony.

A short time later, police located a 31-year-old man who was the driver of the vehicle. The man was arrested for impaired operation of a motor vehicle and provided breath samples that were nearly twice the legal limit.

The vehicle was extensively damaged and the man escaped the crash without injury.

He was released this morning, served a suspension of his licence, and is set to attend court on December 11, 2018, to answer to charges of impaired driving.
