Release Date: June 2, 2023



On June 1, 2023 at approximately 10:45 p.m. Kingston Police responded to a call regarding a single motor vehicle collision that had just occurred in the area of Woodbine Road and Bayridge Drive in Kingston’s west end.


Upon arrival, officers located the motor vehicle facing east in a ditch on Bayridge Drive just south of Woodbine Road. Airbags had deployed inside the vehicle as a result of the collision. Further investigation revealed that the lone occupant of the vehicle had been last seen walking south on Bayridge Drive.


Police were able to immediately locate the driver, who had evident injuries to their face, near the intersection of Bayridge Drive and Old Colony Road.  


Officers confirmed that this was the driver from the motor vehicle collision and then made observations that the driver was impaired by alcohol. The accused was arrested and subsequently transported by Frontenac Paramedics to the hospital where they provided two breath samples. The accused was found to have approximately two times the legal limit of alcohol in their system. The accused suffered minor injuries as a result of the motor vehicle collision.


The accused, a 32-year-old individual who resides locally, was charged with impaired driving by alcohol, and having a blood alcohol concentration over 80 mg. 


The accused was later released from police headquarters with a future court date. Their driver’s licence is automatically suspended for 90 days and would face a one year suspension if convicted. The vehicle was seized and impounded for 7 days, with the accused being responsible for all fees and fines.
