Angus man facing multiple charges in Barrie

Posted July 5, 2017

A 33-year-old Angus man was arrested by Barrie police yesterday afternoon for being impaired by drugs after he fled the scene of a collision involving another vehicle in the city.

Barrie Police were called to the scene on Mapleview Drive West at Bryne Drive at 4:55 pm.

"One driver was observed trying to stuff the deployed airbag back into the steering wheel while attempting to flee the scene," according to the police report. "The vehicle had severe front end damage with fluid leaking as he drove towards the 400 highway ramp.  The vehicle did not make it far, stopping before the male was able to get to the highway. When police arrived, they found him unconscious at the wheel. Police immediately arrested the male for operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs and upon arresting him located drug paraphernalia on the seat beside him. It was also learned the accused had two previous driving suspensions and was bound by an undertaking to not consume drugs or alcohol."

He was transported to Royal Victoria hospital, cleared and then taken into custody for a bail hearing. He is charged with Dangerous Operation of Motor Vehicle; Fail to Stop at Scene of Accident; Fail to Comply with Undertaking; Possession of a Controlled Substance; and Drive While Under Suspension x 2.
