Passenger Air Lifted to Hospital With Serious Injuries, Arthur Man Charged

ELORA – A 23 year old Elora woman is fighting for her life as a result of a single vehicle collision in Belwood.

The woman was travelling as a passenger in a sedan at around 4:30 Saturday morning when it lost control and crashed on Sideroad 9. She was air lifted to hospital and there is no update on her condition at this time. Wellington OPP charged 30 year old Jeffery C-A McDougall of Arthur with drunk driving as a result.

But officers say he’s not the only one they’ve caught drinking and driving lately. They caught not one but two impaired drivers on the Hanlon Expressway in Guelph earlier that same day. OPP charged 27 year old Stephen F-W Tilmar of Milton shortly after midnight and 40 year old Olga Maria Roque-Jarquin of Guelph about two and a half hours later.

OPP are encouraging everyone to drive responsibly this holiday season.
