(ASHFIELD-COLBORNE-WAWANOSH, ON) - A 56-year-old from Stratford has been charged with Impaired Operation and Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) 80 plus following a crash that took place last week in Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh.

On August 15, 2019 at approximately 6:52 p.m. Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) received information about a vehicle that had just left the roadway and went into the ditch on McGaw Road near CP Line.
