Northumberland OPP – Alleged Impaired Driver Collides with Tractor

In Police Blotter

On Thursday May 21, 2020 at approximately 7:45 pm members of the Northumberland Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a collision involving a farm tractor and yellow Jeep Wrangle at the intersection of Gully Road and Massey Road west of the village of Grafton.

Officers arrived at the collision site and confirmed no injuries were sustained. Upon speaking with the driver of the Jeep, an odour of an alcoholic beverage was detected. A Roadside Screening Device (ASD) was administered to the vehicle operator at the scene resulting in a “fail”. The driver was transported back to the OPP detachment in Cobourg for further testing. As a result of the investigation Brandon KELLY (age 25) of Cramahe Township, Ontario, was arrested and charged under the Criminal Code of Canada with:

• Operation while impaired – alcohol and drugs

The accused was released and is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Cobourg on July 29, 2020.

The OPP remains committed to enforcing impaired driving laws and educating road users about the dangers posed by motorists who drive while impaired by alcohol or drugs. Drivers need to remember that any amount of alcohol or drugs can impair one’s ability to drive. Do your part in keeping our roads safe by planning ahead.
