Police have pulled a driver from Brampton off the road after a two-vehicle collision in Caledon earlier this month.

The OPP says officers from the Caledon detachment were called to a stretch of Mayfield Road near Hurontario Street at around 8 p.m. on Jan. 22 for reports of a collision.

When police arrived on scene they found two vehicles had been involved in the crash.

And while no injuries were reported, police say investigators discovered one of the drivers was under the influence of alcohol.

Police say a 23-year-old man from Brampton was arrested and charged with one count of operation while impaired – blood alcohol concentration (80 plus).

The accused is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on Feb. 8 to answer the charge.

Police also say the driver’s vehicle was impounded for seven days while their driver’s licence was suspended for a period of 90 days.

The crash has police reminding the public not to get behind the wheel if you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol and to plan for a safe ride home. If you suspect that someone is driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs, police say to call 911 to report it when it is safe to do so.
