The Rainy River District OPP charged an adult male driver with impaired driving offences.
Yesterday at 4:49 a.m., officers were notified of a motor vehicle in the ditch along Highway 11 on Couchiching.
Officers located the driver at a residence in Fort Frances.
The 24-year-old Fort Frances man was arrested and taken to the OPP detachment for breath tests.
He subsequently was charged with having a blood alcohol level over 80 mg, driving while impaired, and failing to remain at the scene of an accident.
The vehicle was impounded for a minimum of seven days, and he was issued a mandatory 90-day driver’s licence suspension.
He is scheduled to appear in court here June 6.
