A Quebec man is facing multiple charges after the RCMP say an erratic driver hit one vehicle and forced another off the Trans-Canada Highway in southwestern Manitoba.
Police say they received a report early Monday of a vehicle tailgating semi-trucks, stopping and backing up on the highway and hitting another vehicle without stopping just east of Portage La Prairie.
They also allege the driver went into oncoming traffic — causing another vehicle to enter a ditch and roll — before his own vehicle entered a ditch and hit a culvert while trying to flee police.
The Mounties say the 34-year-old suspect from Sainte Brigitte de Laval, as well as the occupants of the vehicle that rolled, suffered minor injuries.
