EPS members arrest two after being called to a series of collisions

The Estevan Police Service (EPS) has arrested two people after being called to what they called a “large collision scene” just after midnight Sunday.

In a series of tweets posted early Sunday, the EPS said the 600-block of Eva Street was closed off for more than three hours as police investigated a series of collisions. Several citizens stayed nearby until EPS members arrived.

Six parked vehicles were struck and four yards were damaged.

There were no injuries.

Two people were arrested at the scene.

According to the EPS, the male driver faces multiple charges including impaired driving (by drugs and alcohol), dangerous operation and driving while prohibited.

The driver and passenger will both face charges of possession of Xanax for the purpose of trafficking after drugs were located on each of them.

They will be held and taken before a justice of the peace later on Sunday.

No additional details were immediately released.
