A man was reportedly handcuffed after a Jeep Patriot struck a hydro poll Sunday morning.
A witness told Peace Arch News that the Jeep appeared to have crossed into oncoming lanes and “sheared” a hydro poll before striking a speed sign.
The vehicle ultimately ended on its side near the 128 Street and 76 Avenue intersection at approximately 7:20 a.m. Sunday.
“The sole occupant of the Jeep was not seriously injured, but was arrested by RCMP,” the witness wrote to PAN.
Surrey RCMP told PAN Monday that police initiated an impaired driving investigation, and the driver received a violation ticket and a 90-day driving prohibition.
