Un­ex­pected guests

Char­lot­te­town woman charged after crash­ing into Mon­tague-area home

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

A Mon­tague area fam­ily had some sur­prise guests early Sun­day morn­ing when a Char­lot­te­town woman drove through the walls of their house.

Just after 5 a.m. on June 9, Kings Dis­trict RCMP re­ceived a call from a res­i­dent to say a car had driven into their home.

RCMP and Is­land EMS re­sponded to the scene. No one in the building was hurt, but the home had ex­ten­sive dam­age.

The car’s driver and pas­sen­ger re­ceived mi­nor in­juries.

The 28-year-old driver was ar­rested on the scene for im­paired driv­ing. She was taken to the Mon­tague RCMP de­tach­ment where she pro­vided two breath sam­ples. Both were more than twice the le­gal limit.

The woman was charged with im­paired driv­ing-re­lated of­fences and re­leased from cus­tody on a prom­ise to ap­pear in Ge­orge­town Provin­cial Court at a later date. Her ve­hi­cle was im­pounded. The fam­ily mem­bers in the home were re­ferred to the Red Cross for as­sis­tance, and they are now get­ting help from that organizati­on.

The RCMP says ev­ery­one is lucky that no se­ri­ous harm or death was the out­come for any of the par­ties in­volved.

The RCMP en­cour­ages mem­bers of the pub­lic to re­port any sus­pected im­paired driv­ers.
