A male, 31, is facing two criminal charges for impaired driving after crashing his car in Rossland on Sunday.

The Trail and Greater District RCMP responded to a report of a single motor vehicle rollover on Cascade Road at 5 p.m. on June 9.

“And for allegedly operating a vehicle while over 80 mg alcohol per millilitre of blood contrary to Section 253(b) of the Criminal Code.”

The driver is scheduled to make his first court on August 15 in Rossland Provincial Court.
