Judge and jury trial scheduled
SYDNEY — A Baddeck man was assigned a trial date Wednesday on impaired driving charges. Alan Kyle MacLeod, 37, of Harvey Drive is charged with two counts of driving with a blood-alcohol level exceeding the legal limit causing bodily harm and two counts of impaired driving causing bodily harm. Three other charges were withdrawn during a court appearance Thursday. The charges relate to an accident Oct. 27, 2013, in Baddeck when a man driving a 2009 Ford Ranger drove head-on into another vehicle. Two females in the second vehicle were seriously injured. A judge and jury trial is now scheduled for May 2-6.
