ESTEVAN - The Estevan RCMP has charged one person following a collision that occurred south of the city last month.

On Oct. 29 at approximately 5:30 a.m., the Estevan RCMP received a report of a vehicle-pedestrian collision in the Sunset subdivision.

The pedestrian sustained what were described as being serious, non-life-threatening injuries. The investigation continued with the assistance of a Saskatchewan RCMP collision reconstructionist.

On Nov. 1, the Estevan RCMP arrested 45-year-old Joseph Dzuba of Estevan. He is charged with one count of operating a vehicle while over .08 causing bodily harm; one count of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm; one count of operation while prohibited; and one count of criminal negligence causing bodily harm. He is scheduled to appear in Estevan Provincial Court on Nov. 21.

The charges have not been proven in court.
