A 45-year-old Halifax man is facing charges in connection with a four-vehicle collision that sent six people to hospital last month.
Emergency crews responded to the crash on the Bedford Highway, near Main Avenue, before 7 a.m. on Sept. 20.
Police say an outbound pickup truck was travelling at a high rate of speed in the middle lane of the Bedford Highway when the driver lost control of the vehicle, causing it to collide with three inbound vehicles.
Four men and two women were taken to hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
Officers arrested the driver of the pickup truck Tuesday evening. He is facing charges of criminal negligence causing bodily harm and dangerous operation of motor vehicle causing bodily harm.
He has been released from custody and will appear in Halifax provincial court on Nov. 19.
