(TOWN OF ERIN, ON) - On September 6, 2019 at approximately 8:10 p.m. members of the Wellington County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a motor vehicle on the Ninth Line at Side Road 5 involving a pick-up truck pulling a loaded horse trailer and a sedan. Witnesses reported that the pick-up truck and trailer were stopped at the stop and started to complete a turn when it was rear-ended by the sedan that was being driven by a possible impaired driver.

Officers attended the scene and while speaking with the driver determined that their ability to operate a motor vehicle was impaired by alcohol and they were placed under arrest. The driver was transported to a local OPP Operation Centre for further testing.
