London Community News
A 39-year-old London woman was charged with impaired driving after allegedly crashing her car four times in one evening.
Just after 9 p.m. Tuesday (Aug. 21), Lambton County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers were called to a collision on Bog Line, in the area of Northville Road in Lambton Shores, where the driver of a Chevrolet hit a Jeep and proceeded to flee scene. The driver of the Jeep followed the suspect vehicle and called police.
The vehicle in question then fled up Northville Road and onto Northville Crescent, where it lost control and hit a hydro pole. Not finished yet, the car continued along Northville Crescent where the driver of the vehicle again lost control and struck a tree, maneuvered back onto Northville Road until it finally drove into a deep ditch.
There were no injuries in the collisions, but police allege the driver of the suspect vehicle, April Collins, had been drinking and was found to be more than three times the legal limit. Collins will be in a Sarnia court on Oct. 15 to answer to charges of impaired driving, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and three counts of fail to remain at the scene of an accident.
None of the charges have been proven in a court of law.
