Woman in West Prince fac­ing drunk driv­ing charges

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - PROVINCE -

UNION — A woman drove a car into the ditch in the early hours Satur­day, and po­lice say she later blew over three times the le­gal limit of blood al­co­hol. West Prince RCMP got a 911 call about the in­ci­dent around 1 a.m. Satur­day, says a state­ment is­sued Mon­day by the po­lice force. The ac­ci­dent hap­pened on the Dock Road be­tween Al­ber­ton and Elms­dale. "As a re­sult of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion a fe­male driver was ar­rested for im­paired care and con­trol of a mo­tor ve­hi­cle and trans­ported to the West Prince RCMP de­tach­ment where she pro­vided sam­ples close to three times the le­gal limit," said the state­ment. The driver was not in­jured in the ac­ci­dent, said po­lice. She was later re­leased and will ap­pear in Sum­mer­side pro­vin­cial court in March to face im­paired driv­ing-re­lated charges.
