Drunk Driver Hit & Run – SMALL

(BLUEWATER, ON) – A Bluewater resident is facing Impaired Operation charges and a charge of Fail to Remain following an investigation conducted by Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) this past weekend.

Just before 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 18, 2021 Huron County OPP officers responded to a single motor vehicle collision located on Goshen Line north of Zurich. Upon arrival officers located a heavily damaged compact car that had left the roadway and collided with a tree. The vehicle was left abandoned so police began searching for the driver. Shortly after officers located the driver at a residence. While speaking with the driver the investigating officer noted the driver had consumed some alcohol and was displaying several signs of impairment. 

As such the driver was placed under arrest and was taken into custody. The accused was subsequently transported to the Huron OPP Detachment where he provided two samples of breath to the Intoxilizer Technician. Two breath samples were provided and both were found to be above the legal limit. 

Jason SMALL, 34 years of age from Bluewater has been charged with Operation While Impaired, Operation While Impaired – Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) 80 Plus and Fail to Remain.

He has since been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for February 7, 2022 at the Ontario Court of Justice – Goderich.
