Strat­ford col­li­sion re­sults in man be­ing charged with im­paired driv­ing caus­ing bod­ily harm

A 52-year-old Is­land man faces charges of im­paired driv­ing caus­ing bod­ily harm fol­low­ing a two-ve­hi­cle col­li­sion in Strat­ford on Wed­nes­day.

The col­li­sion oc­curred at 5:45 p.m. on the Trans-Canada High­way, just east of the Hills­bor­ough Bridge, at the in­ter­sec­tion with the Bun­bury Road.

A 41-year-old man driv­ing one of the ve­hi­cles was in­jured and treated for non-life threat­en­ing in­juries at the Queen Elizabeth Hos­pi­tal.

The driver of the other ve­hi­cle, a 52-year-old from Mer­maid, was ar­rested at the scene and tested by a drug recog­ni­tion ex­pert.

As a re­sult of the test­ing, the man was charged with be­ing im­paired by a drug and driv­ing caus­ing bod­ily harm, along with a num­ber of pro­vin­cial sum­mary of­fences.

The ac­cused will ap­pear in court on the Crim­i­nal Code charges in Septem­ber.
