A possible disaster was averted on Wednesday when Huronia West OPP officers pulled over a transport truck northwest of Barrie and say they found the driver to be impaired.
On Wednesday at around 9:30 p.m., police officers on general patrol on George Johnston Road in Springwater Township stopped a fully loaded transport truck and trailer.
While talking to the driver, police say they noticed signs of impairment and started an impaired driving investigation.
A 37-year-old Brampton man was charged with operation while impaired by alcohol and drugs and operation while impaired with a blood alcohol content above 80.
The driver was given a 90-day driver’s licence suspension, and the vehicle was impounded for a period of seven days.
The man is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Collingwood on Oct. 25.
