Man arrested for drunk driving after crashing through fences

A Revelstoke man was charged with impaired driving after crashing his pickup truck into two fences Friday night.

The incident happened on the 300 block of Humbert Street around 10 p.m.

RCMP say that a pickup truck veered off the roadway, passed through a yard, causing damage to a fence, then came to a halt after crashing through the fence of a neighbouring property.

EHS, Revelstoke Fire Rescue and the RCMP attended the scene. The driver, 44, was arrested and charged with impaired driving. He is scheduled to appear in Revelstoke court on Oct. 1.

Fortunately, no one else was injured in the crash.

The RCMP is reminding people not to drink and drive and to take a taxi or have a designated driver if you plan on drinking.
