Police were called about the crash around 10 p.m. It occurred  in the 20200-block of Golden Ears Way.

The driver and lone occupant of a Honda Prelude exhibited signs of being impaired by alcohol.  His breath samples were analyzed at twice the legal limit of .08 per cent.

The man was later released from police custody when a friend came to pick him up.   He will have to appear on a later date to answer to impaired driving charges, police said.
