A transport truck driver who rolled his rig off the Bay D'Espoir Highway on Tuesday has been arrested for drunk driving.

The 41-year-old male driver is facing a number of charges, including impaired operation of a motor vehicle and failure to report a collision.

The accident happened on Route 360, south of Little River Park.

Police are still trying to find the driver of another vehicle who gave the accused a ride to a diner further up the highway.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the RCMP immediately.
