Police say a 33-year old man is facing impaired driving charges after his vehicle was spotted travelling at a high rate of speed in Sunderland last week. The discovery was made with the assistance of Air 1, which relayed the position and speed of the suspect vehicle to officers who were able to safely stop the driver and take him into custody. Police say at that one point the vehicle was travelling on Highway 12 in excess of 150 km/h. Michael Bursey of Newfoundland was charged with impaired operation and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, and released on a promise to appear.
