Leamington Man Charged With Impaired Driving In Chatham Crash

Chatham-Kent police believe alcohol played a role in a single vehicle crash involving a Leamington man.

It happened around 8pm last night on Grand Ave. E. in Chatham when a car crossed the centre line, forcing other vehicles to swerve out of the way, then slammed into a utility pole.

The driver, a 19-year-old from Leamington, was taken to hopsital with non-life threatening injuries where he was given breath tests.

He's due back in court on April 12.
