(TOWN OF ERIN, ON) - On June 28, 2019, at approximately 5:50 p.m. the Wellington County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a single motor vehicle rollover on the Third Line of Erin.

Investigation revealed that a sedan was southbound on the Third Line when the driver lost control of the vehicle, struck a culvert and rolled over, coming to rest in the centre of the roadway. The driver left the scene and went home while a witness called police.

Officers located the driver at his residence and while speaking with him determined that his ability to operate a motor vehicle was impaired by alcohol. A breath sample demand was read to the driver however, he refused to comply.

A 90-day Administrative Driver's Licence Suspension (A.D.L.S.) and 7-day Vehicle Impoundment was initiated as per statute. The accused is scheduled to appear in Guelph Criminal Court on August 2, 2019.
