Media Report for the weekend of Friday February 6th up and till Monday February 9, 2015 at 6am.

Friday February 6th,

The Saint John Police Force responded to 115 calls for service.

At 1230am, earlier Saturday morning, we responded to a motor vehicle collision where two vehicles had appeared to be involved in a head on collision off of Manawagonish road, in West Saint John.  One driver, a 41 year old female, was taken to the Saint John Regional Hospital by ambulance, with what was described as minor injuries.  The other driver was not injured.  The cause of this collision is still under investigation but alcohol is believed to be a factor in this crash.

At 5:06am early Saturday morning, night shift police members responded to a male that was reported to be parked in the McAllister place parking lot with the vehicle running and had been there for some time. This male driver was described as being slumped over the steering wheel.
The first member on scene approached the driver of this vehicle to check on his well-being and noticed that this male appeared to show signs of impairment. As a result this 48 year old male driver was read the Breath sample demand which his sample resulted in a fail.
He has since been released on conditions which included a mandatory driver’s license suspension and a future provincial court date to answer to the approved Criminal charges relating to Impaired Driving and Care and Control of a motor vehicle while being impaired.
