Race Charges

Race on the track, not on the street. It's a message they didn't hear and now they are lucky enough to still be alive to face charges. Lunenburg County RCMP confirm there was a two vehicle accident in Lower Branch on Thanksgiving Day around 4:30 in the afternoon. Staff Sergeant Mark Furey says police were able to establish both vehicles were racing on the public road at the time. And that contributed to the crash. One vehicle left the road, ending up in the woods and according to witnesses, barely missed two telephone poles. One of the male drivers was taken to South Shore Regional where he was checked out and then released. Police say both drivers are charged with "racing" under the motor vehicle act and will be in court December 2nd to enter plea.
