HALIFAX - Police in Halifax are investigating after an alleged impaired driver crashed head-on into a taxi today, sending two people to the hospital with serious injuries.
Police say the incident happened around 2:30 a.m. in the suburb of Dartmouth.
They say the taxi was stopped at Pleasant Street facing north bound when a BMW Sedan whipped around the corner from Portland Street and attempted to turn right, but crashed into the cab.
The driver of the taxi, a 58-year-old woman, was taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
A 32-year-old woman, one of six occupants of the BMW, also received serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
Both vehicles were extensively damaged and police say the 29-year-old driver of the BMW was arrested at the scene for impaired driving causing bodily harm.
A section of Pleasant Street was shut down Sunday as police investigated.
