(DUFFERIN COUNTY, ON) - Members of the Dufferin Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have been kept busy in the midst of the winter storm by responding to more than 35 calls involving motor vehicle collisions, abandoned vehicles left in snow drifts and stranded motorists. This is in addition to their regular calls for service.

Most notably, just after 3:00pm, OPP attended a single vehicle crash on Airport Road in the Township of Mulmur. The vehicle had left the roadway, rolled over and came to rest in the ditch. The officer made observations that the driver appeared to have been consuming alcohol prior to the collision.

67-year-old Craig PARSONS of Mulmur Township was arrested and charged with:

Operation while impaired by alcohol
Operation while impaired by alcohol - 80 plus

The accused was released and will appear in Orangeville court in March.

The OPP are reminding drivers to ensure they are driving according to the changing weather and road conditions. Turn on full headlight assembly (ensuring that taillights are functioning as well) and give yourself extra time to get to your destination.
