After receiving new information, RCMP say the man arrested after a fatal crash along Highway 3 in Hubley Tuesday is no longer facing charges related to impaired driving.

Mounties say after a witness came forward last evening, investigators are now working on determining the identity of the driver.

Police were called to the single-vehicle collision near 3618 St. Margarets Bay Rd. just after 5 a.m. yesterday morning by someone who heard a loud bang in the area.

Emergency crews found a man inside the vehicle. The first responders tried to extricate him, but the 28-year-old who police said had been living in Halifax died at the scene.

Arriving officers found a second man crouching in the woods near the vehicle. He was taken to hospital with injuries.

Corey Richard Patrick Blinkhorn, 28, from Howie Center in Cape Breton is currently facing charges of theft of a motor vehicle, possession of property obtained by crime and four counts of breaching conditions.

 RCMP say more charges are possible as the investigation progresses.
