Man Arrested for Impaired Operation after Collision

On Saturday, February 4th, 2023, members of the Hanover Police responded to a Motor Vehicle Collision in the area of 11th Street/13th Avenue. On arrival, police interviewed the involved persons and determined that one of the drivers had been consuming alcohol. Further investigation revealed that the same driver’s ability to operate a motor vehicle was impaired by alcohol. The male was arrested and provided samples of his breath, which were almost twice the legal limit of permitted alcohol. A search of the vehicle resulted in the seizure of open alcohol and cannabis that was readily available to the driver. Hanover Police have laid numerous charges against a 26-year-old West Grey man. He was released from custody with an upcoming court date in Walkerton. No one was seriously injured in the accident.
