As a result of a collision in Rose Valley July 19, a 19-year-old received a ticket for driving without due care and attention. In addition, he was handed a seven-day driving suspension because he provided a breath sample over 50 milligrams of alcohol in his blood. However, the individual did not blow over the 90 milligrams of alcohol in his blood, which would have resulted in a charge of impaired driving.
The RCMP said the individual was “arrested for impaired operation.”
While he may have been arrested for impaired driving, he was not criminally charged for impaired driving.
The seven-day driving suspension will not result in a criminal charge for impaired driving.
East Prince RCMP had responded to the two-vehicle collision on Route 225 in Rose Valley. A vehicle travelling east at a high rate of speed lost control at a corner, veered into the westbound lane and side swiped an oncoming vehicle.
There were no injuries as a result of the collision.
