Impaired driver hits construction flag man
An impaired driver clipped a flag man earlier this week at a construction site near the Swan Valley Historical Museum.
On July 31, 2012, at about 4pm, Swan River RCMP were flagged down at the Highway 10 bridge near the Swan Valley Historical Museum, where road construction has been taking place. Police were advised that a pick-up truck had just driven by and clipped a flag man with its mirror. Police say that the man did not require medical attention.
Police patrol was immediately made, locating the suspect vehicle, a 1986 Chevrolet 1500 pick-up.
The driver was identified as 65-year-old Charles Albert Genaille, a resident of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Genaille was taken into custody and charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle and impaired operation over 80 mg% of a motor vehicle. Genaille was released on a recognizance to appear September 5, 2012, at the Swan River Provincial Court house.
The RCMP continue to investigate, additional charges are being contemplated.
