Northumberland OPP – Warkworth Man Facing Multiple Charges (Name Released)

In Police Blotter

One person has been charged following a single vehicle collision.

On March 18, 2024, at approximately 5:20 p.m., members of the Northumberland Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a report of a pick-up truck in a ditch in the vicinity of Concession Road 2 and Platt Road in Warkworth.

Officers shortly located the vehicle at Gravel Road having sustained damage. There were no injuries reported and following interaction with the driver, police were led into an impaired operation investigation.

As a result, the accused was arrested and transported to a detachment for further testing.

Bruno MILNE, 41-years-old from Warkworth has been charged with:

· Operation while impaired – alcohol and drugs

· Operation while impaired – blood alcohol concentration (80 plus)

· Dangerous Operation

· Drive motor vehicle, no currently validated permit

· Fail to report accident

· Fail to remain

· Operate unsafe vehicle.

A further 90-day Administrative Driver Licence Suspension (ADLS) and a seven-day vehicle impound was initiated as per statute.

The accused is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Cobourg at a future date.

Drivers continue to take chances. It’s simply not worth the risk. Motorists are reminded that no amount of alcohol or drugs in your system is safe when driving. If you plan on drinking or consuming drugs, plan to not drive. Instead, arrange for a designated driver, take a taxi or public transit, or come up with another plan that takes impaired driving out of the picture. If you suspect that someone is driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs, it is important to call 9-1-1 to report it.
