Police say alcohol factor in crash; 2 others facing impaired driving charges

Three drivers in Westman were either suspected or charged with impaired driving over the long weekend.

A 69-year-old man from Lake Metigoshe rolled his vehicle Friday afternoon. He was driving southbound on Provincial Road 450, approximately nine miles south of Highway 3 around 5 p.m., when police say his vehicle rolled into the ditch.

The man, who was wearing a seatbelt, survived the collision and was transported to hospital. He was in stable condition at the latest update. Police say the crash is still under investigation, but alcohol is considered a contributing factor.

Just before midnight Friday, Brandon police stopped a vehicle on the 3400-block of Victoria Avenue, because its licence plates did not match the vehicle.

The 37-year-old male driver, said to be from "rural Manitoba," was arrested for impaired driving after police believed he was intoxicated. The man recorded a breath sample higher than the legal limit. He was charged with impaired driving and four additional traffic charges. He was released to attend court later this week.

A Saskatchewan woman was charged after she pulled into a checkstop in Brandon Saturday night.

The 45-year-old from Kamsack, Sask., was found to be a prohibited driver during the check. Police suspected intoxication, and arrested the woman. She later gave breath samples higher than the legal limit.

The woman was charged for driving over the legal limit and impaired driving. She is scheduled to appear in Brandon Provincial Court this week.
