Mounties nab speedy driver near Camp Hughes

A 19-year-old man blasting down the Trans-Canada Highway in excess of 160 km/h Thursday was caught by local RCMP.

According to RCMP Staff Sgt. Mike Zens, the man’s driving was first reported to police in the Portage la Prairie area. However, officers weren’t able to catch up to him.

Just after 10 a.m., Brandon police finally pulled over the westbound 1999 Lexus near Camp Hughes just east of Brandon and the man from Schoenwiese (about 30 kilometres southwest of Altona) has been charged with careless driving and speeding.

"There’s no set fines, so he’ll be compelled to attend before a provincial court representative to have the fines administered," Zens said.

Zens said highway conditions Thursday morning were good.
