The Waterloo Regional Police Service’s Neighbourhood Policing South Division has laid charges after the driver of a vehicle hit a parked car in Cambridge.

On Oct. 16, 2021 at approximately 11:55 p.m., officers responded to the area of Shepherd Avenue and Queen Street West after a report of a motor vehicle collision.

Through investigation, it was determined that the car was allegedly travelling upwards of 120 km/hr in a 50 km/hr zone and struck a parked car. The parked car was launched off the roadway and into a residential fence.

As a result of the investigation, a 35-year-old Woodstock male has been charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle, dangerous driving, fail to remain at the scene of a collision, and possession of suspected cocaine.

Over this past weekend, four other drivers were charged with impaired-related offences.

If you suspect an impaired driver, call 9-1-1 immediately. Road safety is everyone’s responsibility.
