A young motorist faces impaired driving charges after a collision in a parking lot Tuesday night in Bracebridge.

Provincial police say officers responded to a two-vehicle crash in the lot on Manitoba Street just north of Monck Road around 9:30 p.m.

They say witnesses reported seeing a dark-coloured Avalanche speeding through the parking lot at that intersection before hitting a passenger vehicle travelling on Manitoba Street.

The collision caused significant damage, police say.

According to the OPP, officers located the vehicle involved on a side street and arrested an 18-year-old.

He faces charges of impaired operation, dangerous operation, and failing to stop after an accident.

Police encourage anyone with information on this incident to contact the OPP or Crime Stoppers. Top Stories
