VIDEO: Car Crash Results In Drug Related Arrest In East-Windsor
A car crash has turned into a drug related arrest in east-Windsor.
Windsor Police Services were called to the scene of an accident on Tecumseh Rd. near Buckingham St. at around 6pm Friday. Witnesses tell police a black pick-up truck was driving erratically and caused a collision before fleeing the area — it was located a short time later at Tecumseh Rd. E. and Forest Glade Dr.
Police won't confirm if the suspects were under the influence at this time, but did confirm an "unknown substance" was found in the vehicle and the Hazmat Team continues to investigate the scene.
