(HURON EAST, ON) - Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has charged a 67-year-old from West Perth with Impaired Operation following a crash that took place last night in Huron East.

At approximately 10:47 p.m. on May 16th, 2019 Huron County OPP, Huron County Paramedic Services and Huron East Fire Department members responded to a crash located on Mill Road east of London Road.

The subsequent investigation revealed the accused was travelling eastbound on Mill Road in a car when he drove onto the gravel shoulder and collided with a parked pickup truck.

The lone male driver was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for minor injuries. While at the hospital, the investigating officer noted the driver had consumed some alcohol. As a result, the driver provided a sample of his breath into an approved screening device and the results of his test resulted in a fail.

He was placed under arrest and he later provided two samples of his breath to a qualified Intoxilizer Technician; both of his samples registered over the legal limit.

James KEMP, 67 years of age, from West Perth has been charged with Operation While Impaired - Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) 80 Plus and Driver Fail to Properly Wear Seat Belt. He was later released from custody with a court date scheduled for June 10, 2019 at the Ontario Court of Justice - Goderich. His vehicle was impounded and his licence has been suspended for an automatic 90 days.
