Speed and alcohol helped caused a crash on the Standing Buffalo First Nation, near Fort Qu’Appelle, early Saturday morning, according to police.
RCMP said the crash happened shortly after 1 a.m., but only one vehicle was involved.
The 39-year-old man who was a passenger in the vehicle had to be airlifted to hospital by STARS air ambulance. By Saturday evening, RCMP said he was recovering.
The 21-year-old man who police say was driving the vehicle is being charged on three counts: failure to remain at the scene of a crash, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing injury, and driving while suspended.
