Tractor Trailer Driver Hits Off Duty Police Officers Car And Ends Up In The Ditch
On Friday afternoon, an off duty officer was westbound on Aspdin Road in Muskoka Lakes Twp, in their personal vehicle, and was narrowly hit head on by a tractor trailer. The tractor trailer drove into the westbound ditch landing in the swamp area.
The off duty officer quickly determined that the driver of the tractor trailer was not injured but felt he may have been drinking alcohol.
Officers from the Huntsville OPP detachment responded and found the driver to be impaired. As result of their investigation, a 46 year old Brampton man was arrested and eventually charged with Operating a Motor Vehicle While Impaired and Having Blood Concentration more than 80mgs under the Criminal Code of Canada.
The accused will appear in a Huntsville Court of Justice, on September 9, 2020 to answer to his charges.
