West Shore RCMP have issued a $700 fine and impounded the vehicle of a driver who crashed after speeding.

A Nissan 300zx was observed going approximately 90km/hr in a 50 km/hr zone on Millstream Rd.

West Shore RCMP Cst. McKinney attempted to pull over the vehicle, but the driver decided to flee and continue traveling north on Millstream Rd.

However, minutes later, the vehicle had crashed and Cst. McKinney was able to issue several violation tickets, and not just for excessive speeding, failing to stop for police.

Although the driver was sober, there was cannabis in the vehicle within their reach, earning them another ticket for operating a motor vehicle with cannabis in it.

The driver did not sustain any injuries as a result of the crash, but they received a hefty fine of over $700 and the vehicle was towed and impounded for 7 days.
