Driver arrested after tractor trailer collision along Highway 104

ALMA - At approximately 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 12, Pictou District RCMP were called to the scene of an overturned tractor trailer in the median on Highway 104 at Alma.

Just prior to the collision, Police were responding to a 911 call of a possible impaired driver involving this same vehicle. The vehicle was reportedly swerving between both lanes of traffic.

The driver was arrested for impaired operation of a motor vehicle at the scene before being transported to hospital in New Glasgow for treatment of what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

A 50-year-old male from Canso will be charged with refusal of a legal blood demand and impaired operation of a motor vehicle. He will be appearing in Pictou Provincial Court on Feb. 28, 2018.

The investigation is ongoing.

Highway 104 westbound near Exit 20 will be down to one-lane all-night and into tomorrow while crews clean-up the scene.
