Grand Falls-Windsor RCMP responds to hit and run collision, driver arrested for impaired driving


The RCMP have arrested a 19-year-old man in connection with a hit and run two-vehicle collision that occurred in Grand Falls-Windsor on January 11.


Thursday afternoon, at approximately 2:30 p.m., Grand Falls-Windsor RCMP received a report of a hit and run collision that occurred on Pinsent Drive. The driver of one of the vehicles failed to remain at the scene and was located in a commercial parking lot nearby.


He showed signs of alcohol impairment and was arrested. Back at the detachment, the man provided breath samples that were more than three and a half times the legal limit. He was released from custody and is set to appear in court at a later date to answer to charges of impaired driving and failing to remain at the scene of an accident.


The vehicle was seized and impounded and the man’s licence was suspended.
