Karine Blanchard La Voix de l'Est A motorist intoxicated by drugs ended his race in a cedar hedge at the end of the week. The elderly man in his 20s, a repeat impaired driving offender, has escaped unscathed, but criminal charges will be filed against him.
The individual was driving in the sector of rue Swett in Granby when he lost control of his vehicle, around 1 am, during the night from Saturday to Sunday. His vehicle then drove straight into a cedar hedge.
Police and paramedics were dispatched to the scene. The driver was taken to the Granby hospital to check his health, but he was not injured.
However, he had to provide a blood sample since the police had reason to believe that he got behind the wheel when his abilities were impaired by drugs. Criminal charges will also be filed against him later. His driver's license was also suspended.
This was not the individual's first misstep in such a matter.
