TESTING LEADS TO CHARGES
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.
