Yellowknife RCMP believe alcohol may have been a factor in a single-vehicle accident on the Ingraham Trail Tuesday night.

At approximately 7:10 p.m., police say a pickup truck veered off the road and crashed into an adjacent rock face about four kilometers north of the city.

The male driver was the only person in the vehicle at the time. He was transported to Stanton Territorial Hospital for treatment but was later released.

Police believe alcohol played a role in the crash. The roadway was closed for two hours as RCMP conducted an investigation.
