Members of the Thunder Bay Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police have arrested and charged one individual with impaired operation following a motor vehicle collision.

On November 5, 2023, just after noon, members of the OPP responded to a two-vehicle collision involving two passenger motor vehicles on Highway 11/17 within city limits.

Before police arrived, the driver of one motor vehicle fled the scene and was located shortly after by Thunder Bay Police Service.

There were no injuries reported as a result of the collision.

Through investigation, it was determined that the driver of the motor vehicle was impaired by alcohol and was subsequently placed under arrest and transported to the OPP Detachment for further testing.

As a result, a 62-year-old, Thunder Bay resident has been arrested and charged with operation while impaired, and failure to stop after an accident.

The accused has been released from custody and is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Thunder Bay on January 9, 2024.
