A 45 year-old woman has been charged with Impaired Driving following a single-vehicle collision the morning of Tuesday, August 4, 2020.
On Tuesday, August 4, 2020, at 8:38 a.m., police were dispatched to a single vehicle collision in the area of 2nd Avenue North and Winnipeg Street. Police were advised a vehicle was northbound on Winnipeg Street, observed to be travelling at a high rate of speed, when it left the roadway and rolled. A dog was ejected from the vehicle and died. The female driver and a child passenger appeared to have only minor injuries. The child was transported to hospital by EMS, as a precaution. The vehicle had extensive damage. Police at the scene had reason to believe the driver may be impaired and conducted an examination by a drug recognition expert. The driver was also found to be a disqualified driver and had three warrants for her arrest. She was taken into custody; further investigation led to charges in connection with the collision.
