Shortly before 8:00 p.m. last night, Monday, October 21, Barrie Police responded to a report of a vehicle that had collided with a house in the Mapleton Avenue and Marsellus Drive area of Barrie.
The investigation has determined that the driver had tried to enter a nearby restaurant, but as staff believed he appeared to be impaired, they refused to serve him. The restaurant staff attempted to stop the driver from returning to his vehicle and called police. The vehicle then left the property, where it traveled a short distance before hitting a nearby house.
Upon arrival, officers found the vehicle on the front lawn of the property, where it had come to a stop. The driver was located on scene and was not injured. Fortunately, no other injuries were reported.
A 23-year-old Barrie man has been charged with Dangerous Operation, and Operation while Impaired, and is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice located in Barrie on November 4, 2019.
