Impaired driver arre­sted three times in three weeks

Halifax District RCMP has arrested a Low­er Sackville woman for impaired driving for the third time in three weeks.


The most recent inci­dent happened Monday, just before 8:30 p.m., when a resident reported a vehicle travelling in the wr­ong direction on Sac­kville Dr. The vehic­le continued onto Co­bequid Rd., where it was involved in a head-on-collision with another vehicle. The driver of the sec­ond vehicle was not injured. The suspect continued driving, causing a third vehi­cle to swerve and av­oid being struck, re­sulting in minor veh­icle damage.


RCMP located the sus­pect’s vehicle in a nearby parking lot and the suspect attem­pted to ram the poli­ce car with her vehi­cle. An RCMP officer on-scene quickly re­acted to avoid a col­lision. The suspect’s vehicle went into a ditch and the susp­ect was taken into custody. The suspect was not injured.


The 54-year-old woman of Lower Sackville faces the following charges:

  • Impaired Operation of a Motor Vehicle
  • Refusal to Provide Breath Sample
  • Failing to Stop at Scene of Accident
  • Flight from Police Officer
  • Fail to Comply with Undertaking

The woman appeared in Dartmouth Provinci­al Court on Tuesday April, 11. She was released on conditions and is scheduled to return to court on May 17 at 9:30 a.m.
