MISCOUCHE – Prince District RCMP is looking for a suspect who fled the scene of an accident when their vehicle struck a power pole around 5 a.m. in Miscouche on Saturday.

Traffic was interrupted for several hours after the accident while Maritime Electric crews worked to restore power to the area.

The accident occurred just west of the Miscouche Legion near the intersection of Route 2 and Lady Slipper Drive.

Power was interrupted in the area throughout the day as crews tried to fix the pole and traffic lights.

Extensive damage was done to the vehicle, power pole and the surrounding properties.

The investigation is ongoing.
