Court date set for late March
ESKASONI— A 27-year-old Eskasoni man will be in provincial court March 30 to enter to charges of impaired operation of a motor vehicle and theft of a motor vehicle over $5,000.
Dale Clifford Young was arrested by Eskasoni RCMP after a stolen oil truck left the road Saturday morning.
The crash occurred as the vehicle exited Eskasoni. The driver was believed to have been headed in the direction of Castle Bay when he hit a utility pole on Castle Bay Road.
Members of the regional hazardous materials team and the provincial Department of Transportation helped with the removal of the vehicle. While no oil leak was reported, a second oil truck was used to transfer the oil before the vehicle could be removed from a ditch.
