Emergency crews responded at about 7:45 p.m. to a report of a single-vehicle collision on Rue Lafontaine East and found a “’70s-era” Chevrolet Corvette lodged in a forest about 25 metres off the road, Southern Georgian Bay OPP said in a news release.

The driver received care from paramedics and was then taken to the OPP detachment for breath samples.
