SUDBURY -- A 25-year-old man from Wasauksing First Nation is facing charges after police responded to a boat collision late Sunday evening in Parry Sound.
The Ontario Provincial Police and emergency medical staff responded at 11:40 p.m. to a report of a single vessel collision at Big Sound Marina on Bay Street in Parry Sound.
"The vessel had struck a break wall surrounding the marina causing the operator to be transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries," police said in a news release Monday. "While speaking with the operator, officers also concluded alcohol had been consumed and further testing was conducted."
The man is charged with impaired driving and having more than the legal limit of alcohol in his bloodstream while operating a vehicle.
He is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Parry Sound on Oct. 15, and was issued a 90-day driver's licence suspension.
