Vehicle in Lake

A 51 year old Trent Lakes man is facing impaired driving charges after his vehicle landed in Pigeon Lake on Friday night.

Peterborough OPP had attempted to stop the vehicle on Crowes Line Road shortly after 10:00pm but it continued into a parking area and then into the lake.

Officers swam to the vehicle and rescued the driver, who appeared to be under the influence of alcohol.

Kenneth Murray is facing numerous charges including Impaired Operation of a Motor Vehicle, Flight from Police and Assault with Intent to Resist Arrest.

The accused is scheduled to appear court on June 7th.
