West Shore RCMP attempted to stop a suspected impaired driver on the Trans Canada Highway travelling south towards Veterans Memorial Parkway.
Witnesses reported a green Ford F350 truck was driving erratically and struck the highway meridian several times.
When officers attempted to pull the suspect over the driver fled in his vehicle from the police. Police located the vehicle travelling into oncoming traffic on the McCallum Road off-ramp and observed it collide with the concrete barrier.
The 55-year-old male driver of the Ford F350 was arrested by police. The suspect sustained minor injuries and there were no other vehicles or passengers involved in the collision.
The suspect is under investigation for impaired driving, dangerous driving, and flight from police.
