The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary laid impaired driving charges against two people in the northeast Avalon region on Thursday.

A two-vehicle collision in Pouch Cove led to a number of charges, including impaired driving and uttering threats against a police officer. The 51-year-old driver was also charged with driving while prohibited and refusing the breathalyzer.

The driver of the other vehicle was taken to hospital with what were believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.

The accused was jailed pending a court appearance on Friday.

Meanwhile, a second man was charged with impaired driving on Portugal Cove Road in the Town of Portugal Cove-St. Philip's on Thursday evening.

Police said that driver also refused to take a breathalyzer test.

He was released with a future court date.
