Prince Albert police laid impaired driving charges against multiple drivers over the weekend, including one who fled from police after failing to remain at the scene of an accident.

The latter incident took place in the early hours of Saturday morning. Police received a complaint at 6:10 a.m. of a possible impaired driver on 16th Avenue and 15th Street West.

The suspected impaired driver was reported to have been driving recklessly and struck the vehicle operated by the complainant.

The driver then sped away and collided with two parked vehicles on 16th Avenue West, causing extensive damage to all of the vehicles as a result.

The driver and lone occupant of the offending vehicle subsequently fled on foot.

Police searched the area with the aid of police service dog Jagger, eventually taking the driver into custody. He was later remanded in custody to appear in court on Monday morning.

A 19-year-old Prince Albert man has been charged with multiple driving offences including impaired operation, exceeding .08, dangerous driving and failure to remain at the scene of an accident.

Separate occurrences during the weekend led to police charging three motorists with impaired driving.

Police thank the public for their awareness and efforts to report impaired drivers.
