Pair charged with impaired driving after crashing into power pole in Middleton, N.S.

MIDDLETON, N.S. — A single-vehicle accident has led to impaired driving charges for a pair of Nova Scotians in Middleton.

On Nov. 23, Annapolis District RCMP said officers stumbled upon a Main Street crash where a grey Jeep Cherokee had rammed into a power pole, causing heavy damage to the vehicle.

Police said the driver tried to flee the scene but instead ran into a street sign.

Evidence led Mounties to believe that both people in the vehicle had driven the car — one before the crash and one after.

A man and woman were both arrested at the scene for impaired driving and taken to the Middleton Detachment to give breath samples.

The woman’s samples allegedly showed a blood-alcohol reading of 100 mg and 90 mg, while police said the man’s registered as 160 mg and 150 mg.

Both were later released and will appear in Annapolis Royal provincial court on Jan. 15, 2024, to face charges of impaired driving and impaired driving equal to or over a blood-alcohol reading of 80 mg.
