A 25-year old man was charged in connection with reckless driving in New Brunswick, according to the RCMP. The incident happened near Neguac.

On June 27, Jean Raymond Comeau of Lavillette avoided a police checkpoint near Brantville, on Highway 11, about 17 kilometers south of Tracadie-Sheila. At that point, the driver fled from police, weaving in and out of traffic.

The driver lost control of the vehicle and drove into a ditch near Neguac. The driver, nor the 24-year old passenger were injured in the crash, but the driver was arrested at the scene.

Comeau appeared in court on June 30 and charged with a number of offenses in connection with the incident.

Although the investigation continues, Comeau will remain in custody and is scheduled to appear in court July 19, 2017.
