Toronto man, 21, charged with impaired driving after crashing in cottage country

Officers in the Parry Sound area started the long weekend with an early morning call about a single-vehicle crash Friday, Ontario Provincial Police say.

A red, two-door Toyota with a spoiler was found at the crash scene in the Long Lake Estates area of McDougall Township, police said.

Photos provided by OPP show the car in a wooded area with damage to both the front and rear, along with the driver’s side airbag deployed.

No one was injured in the collision, but a 21-year-old Toronto man is charged with impaired operation, driving without a licence, failing to remain at the scene of a crash and refusing to comply with a demand for a breath sample.

“Impaired driving, excessive speed, distracted driving and the misuse of seatbelts are the leading cause of death or injury on OPP-patrolled roadways,” OPP said.

“During the long weekend, if you choose to drink, please do not drive. The consequences of impaired driving could be deadly.”

Anyone can report a suspected impaired driver by calling 911.
