Impaired Driving Crash In Owen Sound

Owen Sound | by Claire McCormack  

Police have charged a 36 year old Kirkland Lake man after a collision on the city's west side.

Owen Sound police have arrested a man after a collision on the city's west side.

Police say just before 7:30 Wednesday evening (Sept 4th) a collision occurred at the intersection of 10th Street West and 8th Ave West.

Owen Sound Police, Fire and Grey County Paramedics responded.

Police say a Kirkland Lake man driving a Toyota pickup ran a red light and hit a Volkswagen.  The impact caused all of the Volkswagen's airbags to deploy.

No one was injured. Both vehicles were towed from the scene.

Police say as a result of their investigation, a road side breath test was conducted in which the 36 year old driver from Kirkland Lake failed.

The man was arrested and police say a later breath test showed he was over twice the legal limit for alcohol.

The driver was charged impaired driving, failing to stop for a red light and for driving with an open container of liquor.

His vehicle has been impounded for 7 days and his driver's licence suspended for 90 days.

The man will appear in Owen Sound Court September 12th.
