Another case of severely impaired driving. Fortunately this one ends with no fatalities.

There was a shocking incident of impaired driving this weekend in which a 52 year old woman decided to pull a U-turn on the 407 and drive against the flow of traffic just before dawn.  Witnesses were busy trying to avoid being hit by her and phoning the police for help. The OPP responded quickly and attempted to pull her over. She refused to stop.

The police then tried to pin her against the median but she still refused to stop at which point the officers took the extremely risky decision to ram her, forcing her car to spin out in the road median. Fortunately neither the police, nor other drivers were injured. The woman had minor injuries.

She was charged with a variety of criminal code and provincial offences including impaired driving, open alcohol, dangerous driving, and failure to stop for the police. I suspect that she will not be driving again for quite some time, and I am thankful no one was hurt.
