(MILLBANK, ON) - On August 6, 2019 at approximately 2:30 p.m., members of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Perth County detachment, Perth County Paramedic Services and Perth East Fire Department responded to the scene of a collision involving a single motor vehicle.
The collision occurred on Perth Line 72 in between Road 124 and Road 129, west of Millbank in the Township of Perth East.
A passenger minivan left the roadway and struck a hydro pole.
The female driver, 2 male and 2 female passengers of the minivan were transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.
Barbara WAGLER, 47-years-old of Millbank was charged with Careless driving and issued a Provincial Offence Notice (PON).
Falling asleep at the wheel is a serious concern on our roads. In Canada, 20% of fatal collision are linked to driver fatigue and being tired slows your reaction time, decreases awareness and impairs judgement to a similar affect like alcohol or drugs.
