Police have laid charges against a young driver from Caledon after allegedly rolling their vehicle in an impaired driving crash this week.

The Caledon OPP say officers were called to a stretch of Horseshoe Hill Rd. near The Grange Side Rd. in Caledon shortly before 10:00 p.m. on Wednesday (March 29).

Police say there was a single-vehicle crash and that the vehicle rolled over in the collision. The driver of the vehicle suffered only minor injuries, police said.

But when officers began investigating, police say they found evidence that the 20-year-old driver was impaired by alcohol.

Police say the 20-year-old was charged with:

  • Operation while impaired – blood alcohol concentration (80 plus)
  • Young driver – B.A.C. above zero

The vehicle was impounded for seven days, and the driver’s licence was also suspended for 90 days, police said.

The accused is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on April 20. None of the allegations have been proven in court.

Police are reminding motorists not to drive if they plan on drinking or consuming drugs, and that drivers under 21 or who have a G1, G2, M1 or M2 licence cannot have any amount of drugs or alcohol in their system while operating a motor vehicle.
