A 54-year-old Charlottetown man was arrested Thursday night following a motor vehicle hit-and-run accident on Babineau Avenue at Malpeque Road.
Charlottetown police received a call about the incident at 10:49 p.m.
The complainant told police he struck a snow bank after being forced off the road by another vehicle. The driver of the second vehicle left the area of the collision but was observed heading towards Canadian Tire.
Officers responding to the call located the accused and attempted to stop him, but he refused to stop and left the area with police in pursuit.
Police later found the accused vehicle lodged in a snow bank on the Winsloe Road and apprehended the driver.
The accused was jailed at the provincial correctional centre. He will be appearing in provincial court at a later date.
