Hwy 16 collision sends mother, children to hospital

Man arrested, being investigated for impaired driving

A man was arrested following a two-vehicle crash that sent a woman and two children to hospital last night, Sept. 21.

Around 9:30 p.m., while responding to a report of an impaired driver in a red Ford pickup truck, police were called to a two-vehicle crash on Hwy. 16 near Kalum Motel involving a truck of the same description and a Honda Odyssey van.

Police arrived on scene to find all occupants out of their vehicles: a woman and two children from the van, and a man who was the driver and sole occupant of the truck. The women and children were taken to hospital with minor injuries. The man was medically cleared, arrested, and taken to cells where he remains in custody.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor. The investigation is ongoing.

More to come.
