A man facing three impaired driving-related charges following a single-vehicle crash in Antigonish Co. is scheduled to return to court in September.
RCMP say officers were called to the collision on the East Havre Boucher hill on Hwy. 104 in March 2017.
They say all four people inside the car were taken to hospital with injuries.
Police say two men from Pomquet and Port Hawkesbury, who were 19 and 26 at the time, respectively, were thrown from the vehicle, and were airlifted to hospital in Halifax in critical condition; two women, who were both 19 at the time, from Monastery and Central New Annan, were also hurt.
Kirkland MacDonald, 21, of Pomquet has been charged with three counts of impaired driving causing bodily harm.
His trial opened in Antigonish Provincial Court in June; it resumed Wednesday and Thursday, and is expected to continue Sept. 19.
