RNC Investigation into Collision Results in Arrest

The RNC has made an arrest following an investigation into multiple collisions in the Brookfield Road area of St. John’s in April.

Back in April officers responded to a report of a motor vehicle collision involving a residential property on Brookfield Road in St. John’s.

A red van collided with multiple vehicles before coming to a rest following a collision with a house on Brookfield Road. The operator, a male from Conception Bay South, was transported to the Health Science Centre with injuries.

An investigation determined that the operator was impaired by alcohol at the time of the collisions. In addition, investigators believe that the vehicle was travelling at a speed of up to 165 km/h in a 50 km/h zone in the seconds leading up to the collisions.

A 39-year-old male from CBS has been charged with impaired driving, operation of a motor vehicle while impaired by over 80 mg of alcohol, and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. The accused was released from custody to appear in Provincial Court at a later date.
