Brampton man facing drug charges after Bradford crash

Impaired driving charges laid in separate crash investigation

A slew of charges laid following a single-vehicle crash in Bradford.

At around 10 a.m. Monday, South Simcoe Police officers were called out to a single-vehicle collision on Highway 88 just east of the 400. Investigators believe the eastbound vehicle crossed four lanes of traffic and rolled into the northbound ditch. The driver was located at a nearby gas station where he was arrested. The K9 unit was brought out to conduct a search of the vehicle. A quantity of suspected cocaine was seized.

The 18-year-old Brampton man behind the wheel was charged with drug possession, obstructing police, careless driving, and driving without a license.

Meanwhile, a separate collision reported at about 9 p.m. Tuesday also led to charges laid. Officers were called to a Holland Street parking lot with reports of a fail to remain crash. The victim told police a vehicle that was trying to park struck her vehicle and then took off.

The police investigation led to the arrest of a 32-year-old Innisfil woman, who now faces charges of driving while impaired and failing to remain at the scene of a crash.
