Drunk Driver Arrested Following Collision – WILDGEN

(HURON EAST, ON) – Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has charged an Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh resident with Operation While Impaired – Blood Alcohol Concentration (80 Plus) following a two-vehicle collision that took place this past weekend.

On Saturday, April 23, 2022 at approximately 9:18 p.m. Huron OPP officers responded to Brucefield to investigate a two-vehicle collision that occurred on London Road (Highway 4) at Mill Road. The subsequent investigation revealed the accused was northbound on London Road when his vehicle collided with the rear of another vehicle that was also travelling northbound. 

Upon speaking with the accused the investigating officer noted the driver had consumed some alcohol. As a result a roadside screening test was utilized and the driver registered a “Fail”.  

Consequently the driver was placed under arrest and was transported to the Huron OPP Detachment for breath tests. Two samples of breath were provided to the Intoxilizer Technician and both tests were found to be above the legal limit. 

Reamonn WILDGEN, 28 years of age from Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh has been charged with Operation While Impaired – Blood Alcohol Concentration (80 Plus). The accused has since been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for June 6, 2022 at the Ontario Court of Justice – Goderich.
