On Friday, Feb. 9 at approximately 5:50 p.m., New Glasgow Regional arrested a 56 year-old from Pictou County with impaired driving, after a concerned citizen called 9-1-1 to report a speeding Chevrolet truck had just collided with a parked Toyota Rav4.
Police immediately responded to area of North Avenue, New Glasgow and arrested the male driver.
The driver was charged with impaired driving, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and refusal to provide breath sample.
The driver will appear in court at a later date.
Const. Ken MacDonald said, “The quick response of the citizen calling 9-1-1 to report the impaired driver may have saved lives.”
