On Wednesday, Dryden OPP received several traffic complaints involving a Pontiac Sunfire travelling westbound on Highway 17.

Shortly thereafter, around 8:30 p.m., police responded to a single-vehicle roll-over in Dewan Township involving the above vehicle.

Fire and ambulance services were on the scene to assist.

The driver of the vehicle, a 29-year-old Dryden man, was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries. He was the lone occupant of the vehicle and has been charged with having liquor readily available in the vehicle.

The investigation is ongoing and other charges are pending.

In other news, Dryden OPP responded Thursday to a weapons-related incident at Aaron Park in Zealand Township.
