Two drivers were sent to hospital with non-life threatening injuries following a two-vehicle crash in Plympton-Wyoming Tuesday night.
Members of Lambton OPP, Lambton EMS and the Plympton-Wyoming Fire Department were called out to the scene of the crash at the intersection of Lakeshore Road and Aberarder Line just after 10 p.m.
Police say two vehicles – both with extensive damage – were found in the northwest ditch of the intersection.
An investigation determined that the driver of a Toyota Corolla travelling eastbound on Aberarder Line hadn’t stopped at a posted stop sign and struck a northbound Ford 500 in the intersection, police say.
During the course of the investigation, police say officers formed the opinion the driver of the Toyota was impaired due to consumption of alcoholic beverages.
The driver was arrested and subsequent breath testing resulted in readings over the legal limit, police say.
Michael Hewlin, 35, of Plympton-Wyoming, has been charged with driving while ability impaired causing bodily harm.
Lambton OPP are reminding drivers that any amount of alcohol or drugs can impair one’s ability to drive, and that impaired driving remains the leading cause of criminal death in Canada.
