Impaired charge laid after crash on highway

A 68-year-old Rosslyn woman was charged with impaired driving early Sunday morning after a sport utility vehicle crashed in Neebing.
Provincial police said the SUV was the only vehicle involved in the collision when officers went to the scene on Highway 61 around 6:15 a.m. No injuries were reported.
In addition to the impaired driving offence, Janet Slipetz was charged with operating a vehicle with a blood-alcohol reading of more than 80 milligrams, a provincial news release said on Monday.
Slipetz is to appear in Thunder Bay court on July 17, the news release said. None of the charges have been proven in court.
