Two RCMP releases : Call from public results in arrest of two impaired drivers – Plymouth / Head-on motorcycle collision claims second life – Sweets Corner

Just before midnite last evening, Pictou County District RCMP responded to complaint of two impaired drivers in a parking lot in Plymouth.

Upon arrival, RCMP located open liquor in one of the vehicles. Further investigation determined that both drivers were under the influence of alcohol. As a result, a 47-year-old man from Kenzieville was arrested for Refusal to Provide a Breath Sample on an Approved Screening Device. He is scheduled to appear in Pictou County Provincial Court at 9:30 a.m. on November 26. He also received a Summary Offence Ticket for Operating an Unregistered Vehicle.

The driver of the second vehicle, a 31-year-old woman from Abercrombie, was arrested and is facing charges for Impaired Care and Control of a Motor Vehicle and Refusal to Provide a Breath Sample. She is scheduled to appear in Pictou County Provincial Court at 9:30 a.m. on November 26.

The investigations are continuing.

On September 3, a collision between three motorcycles claimed the life of a 64-year-old Enfield man. The driver of a second motorcycle, a 23-year-old man from London, Ontario, passed away on September 14 at the QEII in Halifax. The man had been transported to hospital via LifeFlight with life threatening injuries following the collision.
At 5 p.m. on September 3, a lone motorcycle rider travelling East collided head-on with a motorcycle travelling West. The westbound motorcycle was being driven by a sole rider, and behind that was another motorcycle occupied by two people. The driver of the eastbound motorcycle died at the scene. The driver of the second westbound bike required transport to hospital via ambulance, and the passenger on that bike sustained minor injuries.

An RCMP Traffic Analyst was called to the scene to assist with the investigation. Wentworth Rd. was closed for several hours during the investigation.
