A Waterloo male is charged with impaired driving following a single-vehicle collision in downtown Guelph early Sunday.

Approximately 2:30 a.m., Guelph police on patrol discovered the collision at Norfolk Street and Cork Street East. A vehicle had mounted the curb and struck a light pole.

A male approached officers and admitted he was the driver and that the car was his father’s. The male had a strong odour of alcoholic beverage on his breath and was showing signs of impairment, including bloodshot eyes and poor fine motor skills.

He failed a roadside screening device and was taken to the police station, where further testing confirmed he had more than the legal amount of alcohol in his system.

A 24-year-old Waterloo male is charged with impaired operation and driving without a valid insurance card. His driver’s licence was immediately suspended for 90 days and the vehicle impounded for seven days.
