Impaired driving charges have been laid against a 21-year-old Dauphin man following a single-vehicle rollover last Thursday in Riding Mountain National Park.

Dauphin RCMP says the accident, which resulted in a grey-coloured Ford Fusion ending up on its roof in the ditch, occurred around 5:45 pm last Thursday on Highway 10.

EMS and Dauphin Fire crews joined police on scene and treated two female passengers for minor injuries.

The driver also sustained minor injuries, and was charged with impaired driving after breath samples taken at the Dauphin detachment indicated his blood-alcohol levels were 2.5 times above the legal limit.

He has been released from custody and is due to appear in Dauphin Provincial court on February 27th.
