An adult male driver has been charged criminally with operating a motor vehicle while exceeding the legal limit of alcohol in his system after an investigation by the LaSalle Police Service into a motor vehicle collision that occurred early this morning.

Just after 6:00 A.M., April 6th, 2023, officers responded to the 1100 block of Morton Drive for a report of a single motor vehicle collision. Investigation into the circumstances revealed that the involved vehicle lost control and left the roadway before striking two parked vehicles in a nearby driveway. The driver was transported to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries sustained in the collision.

As a result, his licence was suspended for 90 days and his vehicle was impounded for 7 days. These charges have not been tested in court.
