A New Brunswick man faces several charges, including impaired driving, in connection with a high-speed collision Wednesday on a Nova Scotia highway.

RCMP say they received a report of a BMW speeding westbound on Highway 104 near Springhill at 202 kilometres an hour.

Police were unable to get close enough to the car to stop it.

They say the car ended up leaving the road and crashing near Amherst, but neither the driver nor the passenger was hurt.

A 27-year-old man from Shemogue, N.B., was arrested at the scene.

Police say he is also charged with driving while prohibited, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and other charges under the Highway Traffic Act, including stunting.

He is due in provincial court in Amherst on June 3.
