The 65-year-old driver of an 18-wheeler transport truck has been charged with impaired driving after police stopped the vehicle Thursday afternoon on the Charlottetown arterial highway.
Police said that shortly before 1 p.m. Thursday, members of Queens District RCMP and Charlottetown Police Service responded to a complaint of an impaired driver operating an 18-wheeler truck en route from Rollo Bay, heading west-bound.
The vehicle was intercepted on the arterial highway and the operator, a 65-year-old male driver, was arrested for impaired driving.
Police said the driver failed the breath analysis test administered to him with a reading significantly in excess of the legal limit.
The man was released from custody and is to appear in Charlottetown Provincial Court on Jan. 14.
