A 43-year-old Puslinch man was charged with impaired driving and dangerous driving after police were called to a crash in the south end on Thursday morning.

The collision happened at about 9:45 a.m. on Downey Road, near the Hanlon Expressway in Guelph.

The person who called police noted one of the drivers wasn’t wearing pants, states a police news release.

When officers arrived, they observed one driver wearing a hooded sweatshirt over his legs and a cigarette facing the wrong way in his mouth (with the filter facing out). Police spoke with the man and reported signs of impairment including slurred speech and an inability to focus on the conversation.

The man was taken to the police station, where a trained drug evaluation expert determined the driver was impaired by drugs.

“Witnesses at the scene reported prior to the collision the male was driving so quickly the front wheels of his pickup left the road while driving over speed humps,” the release said.

In addition to the charges laid, the man’s driver’s licence was automatically suspended for 90 days and his vehicle impounded for a week.
