UPDATE: Impaired Charges Laid After April 4, 2019 Incident

On April 4, 2019, at approximately 9:48 p.m., officers responded to a report of a disoriented and unresponsive male behind the steering wheel of a car on 1st Street near Southview Drive.

Police learned that a motorist in the area had observed a male slumped over behind the steering wheel of his car, which was stopped in the roadway. This motorist approached the vehicle to see if the driver needed assistance, at which time the vehicle began moving. A number of other motorists stopped to assist, one of whom, out of concern for public safety, used his own vehicle to block the car and stop it from continuing along the roadway.

With the car safely stopped, concerned bystanders attempted but were unsuccessful in communicating with the driver through the locked car doors. Fearing a medical emergency, the bystanders called 911 and broke the driver’s side window to tend to the unresponsive male. Police and paramedics arrived on scene and the male was transported to Boundary Trails Health Centre for observation.

As a result of the police investigation, the driver of the car, a 17-year-old male from Winkler, has been charged with Operating a Conveyance While Impaired and Consumption of Cannabis by a Young Person. He was served a Summons to appear in Morden Provincial Court.
