OPP charge individual with impaired driving after three vehicle collision in Caledon

OPP officers within Caledon have released an official statement today (July 8) concerning a three-way vehicle collision in relation to an impaired driver. 

According to the OPP, yesterday (July 7) around 4 pm Caledon officers were dispatched to a three-vehicle collision on Mount Hope Road, near Dr. Reynar Road in the Caledon area. 

When officers arrived on the scene no initial injuries were reported, however, after investigating all parties involved, officers concluded that one driver was deeply impaired and had their ability to operate a vehicle severely compromised. 

As a result, the OPP have charged a 31-year-old man from Brampton with:

  • Operation of a vehicle while impaired — alcohol
  • Failure or refusal to comply with a demand
  • Failure to stop after the accident

At the time of publication, the accused is set to attend the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on July 25, 2024, to answer the charges presented to him.

Additionally, the detained driver’s licence was suspended for 90 days and the vehicle was impounded for seven.

OPP officials warned Ontario motorists in their official statement that failure or refusal to comply with any demands from an officer concerning an impaired operation investigation is a criminal offense — with the consequences equal to being charged with impaired vehicle operation.
