A couple of crashes in Chatham-Kent have led to charges.

Minor injuries were reported.

Damage is pegged at $15,000.

Then, a two-vehicle collision on Communication Rd. just outside of Blenheim caused $16,000 in damage.

A 25-year-old Blenheim woman has also been charged with careless driving.

Chatham-Kent police officers have charged a 27-year-old Chatham woman with driving with no insurance and failing to surrender vehicle ownership.

Earlier this week, an officer on general patrol observed a vehicle travelling eastbound on Wellington St. in Chatham and discovered the license plates were reported “missing” by the Ministry of Transportation.

Police officials say the officer also found the driver was suspended for medical reasons and could not provide proof of ownership or insurance for the vehicle.
