Members of the Estevan Police Service apprehended two impaired drivers during the Feb. 9 night shift.
Police responded to a hit and run collision in the Sun Valley Drive area. The suspect vehicle was located a short time later and a 20-year-old Estevan woman was arrested for impaired driving and failing to remain at the scene of an accident. She will appear in Estevan Provincial Court in March and was issued an indefinite driving suspension. Her vehicle impounded for 30 days.
Members stopped a vehicle on 12th Avenue near 5th Street, and arrested a 27-year-old Estevan woman for driving while impaired. She was transported to the police station, where she provided two samples of breath with results that were double the legal limit. She was lodged in cells until sober and will appear in court in March to answer to the charges. Her vehicle has been impounded for 60 days and her driver’s licence was suspended indefinitely.
In a post on its Twitter feed on Sunday morning, the EPS reported that one of the female drivers had her toddler with her at the time.
No further details were immediately available.
