MRC-des-Collines public security makes arrest for impaired driving after car accident
At approximately 10:30 pm on October 26, MRC-des-Collines police officers responded to an accident involving a single vehicle near 523 Montée des Érables in Cantley. After arriving on scene, first responders located a single individual in the vehicle, a 44-year-old Cantley resident.
He had driven off the road and ended up several hundred meters away, having severed a Hydro-Québec pole in the process. First responders quickly removed the vehicle's occupant, who was then seen by paramedics.
The man was then arrested for alcohol impairment and submitted to a breathalyzer test. He now faces charges, as he was over two times the legal alcohol limit. His driver’s license was suspended for 90 days, and his vehicle impounded for 30 days.
