West Prince RCMP arrested a 40-year-old woman after she allegedly hit a tree while driving drunk.

On Jan. 5 at about 7:20 p.m., the RCMP responded to a 911 call of an impaired driver who hit a tree on private property in West Cape.

The vehicle got back on the road and left the area.

After conducting patrols in the area, the RCMP located the vehicle and arrested the driver.

Breathalyzer samples given at the detachment allegedly showed the driver’s blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit.

She was later released and will appear in provincial court in Summerside in March.

Organizations: RCMP

Geographic location: Cape, Summerside

    A victim of stupidity and poor judgement. You can whine all you like about the LCC like some kind of backwood prohibitionist but all it does is make you look foolish.

    This has nothing to do with the government liquor supply system but has everything to do with common sense and self control.

    The stores that sell liquor are no more responsible for people who choose to drive impaired than our government is. That's right. Driving under the influence is a choice, albeit a stupid one that can and has taken lives. The only one responsible is the person who made their choice to break the law, put others at risk, and ignore the statistics .
