A 55-year-old man from East St. Paul has been charged after a vehicle crashed into a tree Tuesday morning.

East St. Paul RCMP say they received a report of an erratic driver crashing at the corner of Hoddinott Road and Henderson Highway around 11:30 a.m.

Officers found a vehicle hung up in the trees of a residential lot on Hoddinott Road.

The man, who police have not identified, was arrested and faces charges of impaired driving and leaving the scene of an accident.
 
The driver was then taken to the Selkirk RCMP Detachment, where he provided two breath samples that were four times the legal limit. Police are still investigating.
