Release Date: January 15, 2024



On January 14, 2024, at approximately 4:00 p.m. police were notified regarding a collision that had just occurred on Taylor Kidd Boulevard between Gardiners Road and Rockwell Drive in Kingston’s west end.


Arriving at the scene police observed that a lone motor vehicle had impacted a traffic light pole. Further investigation revealed that the accused had been driving their vehicle east on Taylor Kidd Boulevard from Gardiners Road when the car they were driving struck and mounted the center median. The accused, after dislodging the vehicle from the median by rocking it back and forth, continued eastbound now in the westbound lanes of Taylor Kidd Boulevard. Once the accused had driven to the intersection just to the west of Rockwell Drive, they attempted to swerve back into the eastbound lane however, overcorrected causing the vehicle to fishtail into the traffic light pole.


The officer spoke to the accused and made observations that they were impaired by alcohol. The accused was arrested at approximately 4:05 p.m. and transported to police headquarters where they provided two breath samples. The accused was found to have more than one and a half times the legal limit of alcohol in their system.


Mohammad MOHAMMAD, a 24-year-old local individual, was charged with impaired operation of a conveyance and impaired operation of a conveyance while exceeding blood alcohol concentration.


The accused was later released 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.
