A single-vehicle crash into a utility pole in the area of Fourth and Ontario streets, Midland, with persons on foot fleeing the scene prompted a citizen to call the OPP Communications Centre at approximately 12:15 a.m. Aug. 16, reporting a fail-to-remain crash.

Patrol officers from the Southern Georgian Bay OPP detachment patrolled the area and quickly located an individual matching a provided description and after investigation officers have charged Kyle McIsack, 38, of Midland with the following offences: operation while impaired (alcohol and drugs), operation while impaired (blood-alcohol concentration 80-plus), fail to remain, and driving a motor vehicle with no licence.

The accused was released from police custody on a recognizance to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice on Sept. 1 and as well faces 90-day driver’s licence suspensions as per the Ministry of Transportation guidelines and a seven-day vehicle impound.

OPP officers wish to thank those community members who assist in removing impaired drivers by simply calling 911 and reporting their observations of possible impaired drivers in the interest of road safety.
