Caledon OPP Charges Driver Involved in Three-Vehicle Collision With Impaired

Submitted to Just Sayin' Caledon

Officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have charged a driver involved in a three-vehicle collision with impaired operation.

On July 7, 2024, shortly after 4:00 p.m., Caledon OPP responded to a three-vehicle collision on Mount Hope Road, near Dr. Reynar Road, in the Town of Caledon. No injuries were reported. During the investigation, officers formed grounds that one of the drivers’ ability to operate a motor vehicle was impaired by alcohol and was subsequently arrested.

As a result of the investigation a 31 year old of Brampton was charged with:

• Operation while impaired – alcohol

• Failure or refusal to comply with demand

• Failure to stop after accident

The accused is scheduled to attend the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on July 25, 2024, to answer to the charges. The driver’s licence was also suspended for 90 days, and the vehicle impounded for seven.

Caledon OPP would like to take this opportunity to remind motorists that failure or refusal to comply with a demand in an impaired operation investigation is a criminal offence. Furthermore, the consequences an individual will face are the same as being charged with impaired operation.

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. If you suspect that someone is driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs, it is important to call 9-1-1 to report it. You can also provide information anonymously by contacting Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.peelcrimestoppers.ca. When you contact Crime Stoppers, you stay anonymous, and you never have to testify.
