Charges Laid In 2017 Crash Near Wiarton

Charges have been laid in connection with a crash near Wiarton that left one man dead late last year.

Grey County OPP say a 32-year-old woman from South Bruce Peninsula has been charged with impaired driving causing death, driving with more than 80 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood causing death, and the same offences causing bodily harm.

53-year-old Allan Joyce of Georgian Bluffs was killed when the SUV he was a passenger in was hit by a pickup truck in November in the Township of Georgian Bluffs.

Police said at the time that alcohol was a likely factor contributing to the crash.

The woman is scheduled to return to Owen Sound court on March 15.
