Driver charged in crash


On June 3 at 9:10 a.m., the Rainy River District OPP received a report of a two-vehicle collision on Highway 11 at Couchiching.

Both motor vehicles sustained substantial damage and were towed from the scene.

A Fort Frances man was transported to hospital with minor injuries.

During the investigation, one of the drivers, an 18-year-old male of Watten Township, was arrested at the scene.

The vehicle was impounded for the mandatory seven days.

The driver subsequently was charged with failing to provide a breath sample.

He also was issued several provincial offences notices under the Highway Traffic Act and the Liquor Licence Act.

The teen will appear in court here on June 25.
