Huntsville snowmobiler loses licence for three days

HUNTSVILLE — A snowmobile driver who was found lying in the driveway of a residence after police were called about a crash, received a three-days driving suspension for being in the warn-range of alcohol impairment.

Police say that on Friday March 21, 2014, Huntsville OPP along with Muskoka EMS attended a Menominee Lake Road address in the town of Huntsville for a report of a snowmobile crash.

The driver was ejected from the machine and lying on the driveway of a residence.

Police found that the driver Jason Winkworth, 44, of HaldimandCounty, had been drinking.  He was eventually issued a 3 day driver’s licence suspension for registering in the warn range. He was transported to a local hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries. 

As the snowmobile season continues in Muskoka, Huntsville OPP would like to remind sledders to not drink and drive, know the area you are traveling in and sled responsibly.
