On April 14, 2021 at 1:26 am, members of the Grey Bruce Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a single motor vehicle collision on Grey Road 14, in the Municipality of Grey Highlands.

A motorist had driven off of the roadway and was stuck in a ditch.

OPP officers spoke with the driver, who displayed obvious signs of impairment. The driver was uncooperative with officers and refused to provide a breath sample into the approved screening device.

As a result of this investigation, Grey Bruce OPP have charged a 19 year-old woman, from Brockton with the following offences:

  • Failure or refusal to comply with demand, section 320.15(1) Criminal Code of Canada (CCC)
  • Obstruct a peace officer, section 129(a) CCC

The accused's driver's licence is suspended for 90 days and the vehicle they were operating was towed and will be impounded for seven days.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
