Two drivers charged with impaired driving after truck crashes in bush

LAKE OF BAYS - Two drivers of the same vehicle have been charged with impaired driving after a truck ran off the road Saturday evening.

Police say that on Saturday June 7, 2014, just after 7 p.m. Huntsville OPP responded to a motor vehicle collision on Fox Point Rd in Lake of Bays Twp. 

They were called about a Dodge Dakota travelling toward Hwy #35 that lost control on a curve putting the pickup truck into the bushes, taking out trees along the way.

Their investigation found that the driver had been drinking at the time of the crash.

Further investigation found that the driver at the time of the crash was not the driver when they left a cottage in the area, a short time earlier. 

As a result both Philip Kiss, 21, of Burlington, and Cooper Rush, 20, of Oakville, were both charged with Impaired Driving and having more than 80mgs of alcohol per 100mtrs of blood.

They will appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Huntsville on July 16, 2014 to answer to their charges.
