Arthur Street Accident - Image by Thunder Bay Police ServiceTHUNDER BAY – Crimebeat – The Consequences Of Drinking & Driving: “The message from your emergency services is simple. Avoid a tragedy; don’t drink and drive!” The Thunder Bay Police Service is releasing a scene photo from Saturday morning’s single motor vehicle collision on Arthur Street.

“We often report on the charges which result from collision investigations, but there is often more to the story. It is alleged that a 21 year old Thunder Bay woman lost control of her car as it traveled eastbound on Arthur Street near the Highway 61 intersection. The car flipped over several times and the lone occupant of the vehicle was trapped inside. Thunder Bay Fire and Rescue, Superior North EMS, Thunder Bay Police and the O.P.P. responded. It was nothing short of a miracle that the woman survived with virtually no injuries. She was charged with Impaired Driving and Operating a Motor Vehicle with over 80 mgs of Alcohol.” share the authorities.

The photo of what’s left of the Pontiac Grand Prix speaks for itself. This collision could have easily been a fatality which would have had a tragic impact on all concerned.
