Officers of the Lennox and Addington (L&A) County Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) charged a driver with impaired driving.
On Feb. 6, shortly after 1 a.m., officers from the L&A County OPP were dispatched to a call for service in regards to a single motor vehicle collision at the intersection of Marysville Road and Waddingham Road, in Tyendinaga Township, Hastings County.
