East St. Paul man faces charges after car crashes into trees
A 55-year-old man faces two charges after his vehicle crashed into some trees just outside Winnipeg this morning, and he provided RCMP with a breath sample four times the legal limit.
RCMP say they received a call at around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday about an erratic driver who had caused a collision at the corner of Hoddinott Road and Henderson Highway in East St. Paul.
The driver drove away from the scene, but the vehicle was later found crashed into some trees at a residential lot on Hoddinott Road, according to police.
The driver, who is from East St. Paul, was arrested on charges of impaired operation of a vehicle and leaving the scene of an accident.
RCMP said they took the man to the Selkirk RCMP detachment, where he provided two breath samples that were four times the legal limit. Manitoba's legal limit is a blood alcohol concentration of .05.
Investigators also determined that the vehicle was being driven in a way that was dangerous to the public, according to police.
