MONTREAL — A man was arrested for possible drunk driving after his vehicle crashed into a store in Montreal.
An emergency call was placed at about 2:30 a.m., indicating that a pickup truck smashed into a business front door in the Rivière-des-Prairies area of Montreal.

Chèvrefils says that the store damages were mostly found inside, without specifying the name of the business.
The investigation is ongoing and charges are yet to be laid.
