Lower Sackville woman arrested for impaired driving three times in three weeks

A 54-year-old woman from Lower Sackville is facing several charges after being arrested for impaired driving for the third time in three weeks. 

Police say the most recent incident happened on Monday evening after a vehicle was reported travelling in the wrong direction on Sackville Drive, and it was later involved in a head-on collision with another vehicle on Cobequid Rd. 

The woman, police say, continued driving and caused a third vehicle to swerve to avoid being struck, which resulted in minor vehicle damage. 

When RCMP found the woman's vehicle in a nearby parking lot, they say she attempted to ram the police car, but her vehicle went into a ditch. 

No one was injured. 

The woman faces charges including impaired operation of a motor vehicle, refusal to provide a breath sample, failing to stop at the scene of accident, flight from a police officer, and failing to comply with an undertaking.  

The woman appeared in Dartmouth Provincial Court on Tuesday. 

She was released on conditions and is scheduled to return to court on May 17th.
