Ontario Provincial Police said it happened at around 12:39 a.m. on the offramp from northbound Hurontario Street to Valleywood Boulevard.
A fully marked police cruiser with the emergency lights on was parked on the shoulder when it was rear-ended, police said.
Minor injuries were reported.
While investigating, officers suspected that the driver was impaired and requested a breath sample.
“As a result, the driver was arrested for impaired operation and transported to the Caledon OPP Detachment where further breath tests were conducted,” police said.
Caledon resident Yoel Morales Lemus, 48, was charged with operation while impaired — blood alcohol concentration (80 plus).

The incident comes as police forces across the province are conducting RIDE programs during the holidays to combat impaired driving.
