Police say drunk driving is to blame for an overnight crash that snarled traffic during the morning commute.
A man wound up in the ditch at the corner of Grassie and Plessis in Transcona shortly after midnight.
Police now say he had been drinking and blew through a stop sign.
He was rushed to hospital in critical condition but has been upgraded to stable.
He’ll be facing impaired driving charges when he gets out of hospital.
No one else was hurt.
