Meteghan RCMP say a man's blood alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit when he crashed his car into a school bus in Digby County Monday afternoon.

Police say students were getting off the bus, which was stopped with its red lights flashing on Highway 1, when it was rear-ended by the small car.

No one was hurt.

When officers arrived, they found a heavily damaged car and say the driver showed signs of impairment.

A 71-year-old man from Grosses Coques will appear in Digby Provincial Court on June 10, 2019.
