(SOUTH HURON, ON) – A South Huron resident is facing Impaired Operation charges after police responded to a call about a driver passed out behind the wheel.

On Thursday, May 6, 2021 at approximately 6:24 p.m. Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to Ausable Line near Crediton Road to investigate a possible impaired driver stopped on the shoulder of the road. A concerned citizen stopped and checked on the driver and found the driver passed out behind the wheel. 

Upon arrival the investigating officer spoke with the driver and immediately observed the driver to be experiencing signs of impairment. As a result the driver was arrested for Impaired Operation and was transported to the Huron OPP Detachment for breath tests.
