RCMP presses charges against driver who sped through Saskatchewan construction zone
Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in Saskatchewan are pressing criminal charges against a driver who was allegedly impaired when he drove down the wrong lane of the Trans-Canada highway east of the City of Regina and then went speeding through a construction zone.
White Butte RCMP were alerted to the incident when they received a complaint of an erratic driver who was traveling at a high rate of speed, through a construction zone, on Sept. 17 at about 3:40 pm.
The adult male was driving a beige coloured Jetta westbound in the eastbound lane of Highway #1 between White City and the Pilot Butte turnoff.
According to witnesses, the driver then made his way onto the westbound lanes of Highway #1 in a construction zone and was heading westbound.
He knocked down about 10 traffic pylons in the construction zone by the time the vehicle stopped at the intersection of Highway #1 and the 624 grid road.
The driver then fled on foot but was quickly apprehended by White Butte RCMP officers, who located and arrested the man in an adjacent field. A police service dog named Chevy and his handler were involved in the chase.
As a result of this incident, the RCMP have charged Daniel James Macdonald, aged 24, with criminal code charges of Impaired Operation of a Motor Vehicle and dangerous driving.
Macdonald was held in custody overnight and taken to Regina Provincial Court on Sept. 18 to answer to the charges
