Here is something you don’t see every day: two people charged with drunk driving in the same crash.

On Saturday at approximately 8:15 p.m., Greater Sudbury Police officers responded to a two-vehicle collision on Municipal Road 80 at Desmarais Road in Valley East.

“Officers on scene investigating the collision determined the operators of both vehicles were under the influence of alcohol and commenced an impaired driving investigation,” police said in a release. “The reported injuries were minor in nature.

“As a result, both drivers were subsequently charged with impaired driving related offences and released to attend court at a later date to answer to the charges.”

Police did not release the names of the accused.

However, anyone with information is asked to contact police at 705-675-9171 or Crime Stoppers at 705-222-TIPS, or online at www.sudburycrimestoppers.com or by texting TIPSUD and the information to CRIMES (274637).
