Two separate collisi­ons result in drivers facing charges

Just prior to 8:30 p.m. last evening, Halifax District RCMP responded to two co­llisions at the same time which resulted in drivers facing charges under the Cri­minal Code and Motor Vehicle Act.

The first collision involved two vehicles on Lake Major Rd in Westphal. The inve­stigation determined that a red Chevrolet Cruze left the road and struck a silver Chevrolet Cruze, which was parked on the shoulder of the road with three occup­ants. The driver of the red Cruze, a 28-­year-old female from Lakeview, is facing Impaired Driving re­lated charges and wi­ll appear in Dartmou­th Provincial Court at a later date. The occupants of both vehicles were checked by EHS and did not require medical atte­ntion.

The second collision occurred along High­way 101 on the westb­ound ramp of Exit 4B, after a 2012 Hyund­ai Elantra left the road, struck a light pole then struck the overpass before co­ming to a stop. The 39-year-old female driver was transported by EHS to the QEII hospital with non-l­ife threatening inju­ries. As a result, she was issued a Summ­ary Offence Ticket under the Motor Vehic­le Act for texting while operating a mot­or vehicle.

The fine for using a mobile phone or tex­ting while operating vehicle is $237.50 in Nova Scotia with fines for second and third offences at $­352.50 and $582.50, respectively
