Man hits parked vehicles, admits to being impaired by drugs

Prince Albert police have arrested a man involved in a four-vehicle collision after he admitted to being impaired by multiple drugs.

Monday at 7 a.m., officers attended the 300 Block of 16 Street West, where a truck had struck a parked vehicle, which then caused the parked vehicle to hit two other parked vehicles.

The driver was questioned on scene by police, while Parkland Ambulance attended to treat any injuries.

“The suspect admited to emergency personnel that he was impaired by multiple drugs,” the police said in a news release.

The suspect was arrested by police shortly after 8 a.m. and brought back to cells.

A certified Drug Recognition Expert officer conducted sobriety tests to determine the suspect was impaired. According to the news release, “he attempted to obtain a urine sample to further confirm the suspect was impaired by drugs, which the suspect refused.”

The 47-year-old Prince Albert man is facing one charge of impaired operation of a motor vehicle and one charge of refusal to provice samples. He is due in court today.
