A 22-year-old Cornwall man has been arrested and charged with impaired driving after Charlottetown police received two separate complaints.
Charlottetown Police Services responded to a complaint of a possible impaired driver at a business on University Avenue at 5:28 p.m. on May 13.
The complainant indicated that the male driver had slurred speech and was driving a blue Toyota Tacoma.
The vehicle had left the premise before police arrival.
Soon after, at 5:36 p.m., a second complaint describing a similar vehicle was received and reported that it was involved in a collision.
Police attended the collision on Beach Grove Road and determined the driver of the truck was impaired by alcohol.
The drive was arrested and provided breath samples in excess of twice the legal limit.
He was subsequently charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle and will appear in provincial court at a later date.
No injuries were reported at the collision.
