On the afternoon of December 3, OPP were called to a two-vehicle collision in North Bay. The driver of the delivery van hit the road shoulder momentarily, then swerved across the highway almost colliding with the transport head-on (see video from the OPP below).
The 24-year-old driver from North Bay was charged with "unsafe move - lane or shoulder."
The North Bay OPP reminds motorists that a driver's inattention, even for just a moment, could result in death.
"Let's make sure no tragedies occur by doing our part. Pay attention, slow down and drive safe," says an OPP news release.
