A 25-year-old man from Bedford was transported to the QEII with serious non-life threatening injuries.
The driver, a 26-year-old man from Lower Sackville, was not injured. He is currently in police custody and is facing charges as a result of the investigation. Given the investigation is in it’s early stages, charges have yet to be determined.
