Driver flees scene following Muskoka crash that injured two people

Motorist charged with impaired driving

A passenger in a pickup truck involved in a single-vehicle crash in Muskoka Lakes Township late Friday night was transported to a Toronto hospital with life-altering injuries.

Emergency services were called to the area of Milford Bay Road just west of Butter and Egg Road where a male was found trapped in the vehicle and had to be extricated by Muskoka Lakes firefighters.

Bracebridge OPP say the driver fled the scene and was found at a nearby residence by officers.

A 29-year-old Bracebridge man was charged with a number of impaired driving offences.
