Power was interrupted in the Riversdale area after a single vehicle collision occurred at 10:30 AM Saturday morning. Police, as well as personnel from the Saskatoon Fire Dept. and MD Ambulance were called to the 100 block of Ave O South after receiving calls regarding a vehicle that had struck fences and several power poles in the back alley.
The highly intoxicated operator of the vehicle was cleared by medical personnel at the scene and taken to police headquarters for breath testing.
The 47 year old man from Saskatoon has been charged with impaired driving and driving while over .08. He will be appearing in court later this month.
