Two vehicle collision results in Impaired by Drug Causing Bodily Harm charges

One 41 year-old male driver from Charlottetown was injured and taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The other vehicle driver, a 52 year-old man from Mermaid, was arrested and tested by a Drug Recognition Expert. As a result of the testing, the man will be facing charges of Impaired Driving by a Drug Causing Bodily Harm and he was also charged with a number of Provincial Summary Offences. He will be appearing in court on the Criminal Code charges in September.
