Several Incidents for Killaloe OPP Last Week
A collision, several impaired driving incidents, and a break-and-enter kept Killaloe OPP busy last week.
A collision involving a motorcyclist on Highway 60 sent the driver to hospital with serious injuries according to police. A section of the highway in Algonquin Park was closed for 12 hours while OPP investigated. The two passengers in the other vehicle were not injured.
The OPP said three impaired driving charges were also laid last week. Two on highway 60 and one on Water Street in Killaloe. In all three cases, the driver was charged with an over 80, had their vehicle towed and licence suspended for 90 days, and released on the promise to appear before the Ontario Court in Killaloe.
OPP is also looking for suspects in a break-and-enter that happened on Highway 60 in Killaloe, Hagarty and Richards Township. The door of the residence was kicked in and a jewelry was stolen. OPP wishes to question two hitchhikers who were seen around that area at the time of the break-in. Anyone with information is asked to call OPP.
The division also took part in Canada Road Safety Week. The department reported 8 alcohol-related charges and suspensions, 7 fail-to-yield violations, 3 seat-belt infractions and over 90 speeding tickets.
