A Ford F250 OPP truck


A 50-year-old Ottawa man has been charged with impaired driving after his car ran out of gas on a southern Ontario highway.

Ontario Provincial Police said a Ford Explorer pulled over on Ontario Highway 416 in Edwardsburgh Township, about 80 kilometres south of Ottawa, at around 8:30 p.m. Friday.

A tow truck driver responded to help the driver, but police said the operator quickly realized the driver appeared to be drunk and contacted authorities.

Brian Burke of Ottawa has been charged with two impaired driving related charges and will appear in a Brockville, Ont. court on Aug. 12.
