Submitted to Just Sayin' Caledon

Officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have charged three drivers involved in three separate collisions with impaired operation.

On October 27, 2022, at approximately 10:02 p.m., Caledon OPP responded to a report of a vehicle in the ditch on Torbram Road near Old School Road. Since the officer suspected the driver’s abilities to be impaired, a breath sample into an Approved Screening Device (ASD) was requested. As a result, the driver was arrested for impaired operation and transported to a police station where further breath tests were conducted.

Manpreet PANDHER, 24, of Brampton, was charged with:

• Operation while impaired – blood alcohol concentration (80 plus)

On October 29, 2022, at approximately 3:30 a.m., Caledon OPP was dispatched to a single motor vehicle collision on Centreville Creek Road near Mayfield Road. The vehicle had hit a hydro pole before driving into the ditch. Since the driver’s abilities were suspected to be impaired, a breath sample into an ASD was requested. The driver was subsequently arrested for impaired operation and transported to a local hospital for the treatment of minor injuries and to conduct further breath tests.

Ranjodh SINGH, 26, of Caledon East, was charged with:

• Operation while impaired – blood alcohol concentration (80 plus)

Lastly, on October 30, 2022, at approximately 10:06 p.m., Caledon OPP responded to an additional single motor vehicle collision on King Street near Kennedy Road. Once at scene, officers formed grounds that the driver’s abilities were impaired and subsequently made an arrest for impaired operation. The driver was transported to the Caledon OPP Detachment where breath tests were conducted.

As a result of the investigation, Patrick PINNOCK, 56, of Brampton, was charged with:

• Operation while impaired – blood alcohol concentration (80 plus)

• Operation while impaired – alcohol

All three vehicles from the three collisions were impounded for a period of seven days, and the driver’s licences were suspected for 90 days. All three accused are scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on January 12, 2023, to answer to the charges.

The OPP remains committed to taking alcohol/drug-impaired drivers off our roads through enforcement and public education. Drivers are reminded that no amount of alcohol or drugs in your system is safe when driving. If you plan on drinking or consuming drugs, plan to not drive. Instead, arrange for a designated driver, take a taxi or public transit, or come up with another plan that takes impaired driving out of the picture.
