Bizarre crash on Riverside

Timmins police have charged one male person with dangerous driving, a Criminal Code offence, as the result of a bizarre auto crash on Riverside Drive early this evening. Police responded to numerous 9-1-1 calls shortly after 6:00 p.m. with reports a vehicle that was in a collision at the Wal Mart parking lot and then raced eastbound along Riverside Drive. Witnesses said the vehicle was swerving from lane to lane. The vehicle came to a stop at the Shirley Street intersection when it became wedged between two vehicles stopped at the red light. At least two persons were injured. Police were called and they had to wrestle a male from the car and into custody. Timmins firefighters were called to the scene along with paramedics to tend to injured motorists. The incident is still under investigation by Timmins Police Service.
