SYDNEY — A 45-year-old Sydney man has been charged with impaired driving following a crash that damaged utility poles and a fire hydrant on Kings Road early Saturday morning.

Cape Breton Regional Police Service

The charges follow the report of a motor vehicle accident in front of the Medical Arts Building in Sydney at about 2:41 a.m.

The Cape Breton Regional Police Service responded and found a Ford F150 truck had struck two poles, knocked down wires and destroyed a fire hydrant.

The driver and lone occupant of the vehicle was arrested for impaired driving and taken to Cape Breton Regional Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

He was later charged with impaired driving and released from police custody, but will appear in Sydney Provincial Court at a later date.

Police are continuing their investigation.
