A 28-year-old man has been arrested for impaired driving following a collision on Rothesay Avenue.

At around 1:11 am Saturday morning, a 911 caller reported a vehicle driving at a high rate of speed, that failed to stop at a red light, and then collided with a utility pole on Rothesay Avenue at Ashburn Lake Road.

When Saint John Police arrived on scene, they found a man in the driver’s seat of a Toyota Corolla. He was treated at the scene by paramedics.

The driver was then arrested, and released with a court appearance scheduled at a later date.

Officers are looking for witnesses, dash cam video, or anyone with further information.  They should contact the Saint John Police Force at 1-506-648-3333, or if you wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or 1-800-222-T.I.P.S.
