Motor vehicle collision results in injury and arrest in hit and run

Halifax District RCMP received a call about a car hitting a motorcycle at 7:43 p.m., on Sackville Drive, near the intersection of Beaverbank Cross Road. The investigation determined that the car pulled out of a driveway and hit a motorcycle, resulting in injuries to the 38-year-old female driver of the motorcycle. The female, from Hammonds Plains, was taken to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.

The 21-year-old male driver of the car, from Lower Sackville, did not stop and drove to a nearby residence, where he was arrested shortly thereafter. He was released on a Promise To Appear and will be facing charges under the Criminal Code of failing to stop at the scene of an accident, with a court date of July 27, 2016, at Dartmouth Provincial Court.

The offence of failing to stop at the scene of an accident occurs when a person who is operating a motor vehicle is involved in an accident with another vehicle, or person, and with intent to escape civil or criminal liability fails to stop the vehicle, provide their name and address, and where any person has been injured, to provide assistance.
