(MORRIS-TURNBERRY, ON) – A Kitchener resident is facing a long list of charges following a rollover crash that took place yesterday afternoon south of Wroxeter.
Just before 6:00 p.m. Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), Huron County Paramedic Services and North Huron Fire Department responded to a single vehicle rollover crash located on McDonald Line between Amberley Road and C Line Road.
Upon arrival officers located a damaged compact car that had left the gravel roadway and rolled when it hit the ditch.
Upon speaking with a witness police learned the driver had fled into nearby forested area. Officers caught a glance of the fleeing suspect and were able to successfully track the suspect and an arrest was made.
While dealing with the accused the investigating officer noted the driver was displaying several signs of impairment by a drug. Following an assessment at the hospital for potential injuries a drug recognition evaluation was conducted. Upon completion of the examination, the Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) determined the driver was indeed impaired by a drug.
A search of the accused was conducted and it resulted in police seizing a replica pistol, quantities of suspected methamphetamine, cocaine, and fentanyl. Additional checks on the accused revealed the accused was breaching conditions of an earlier court release.
