Two men charged in a pair of separate collisions: Guelph police

Guelph police said two men are facing impaired driving charges after a pair of separate collisions.

The first crash — a two-vehicle collision — occurred just after 7:00 p.m. Tuesday at Victoria Road and Grange Street.

Officers reportedly noticed the smell of alcohol on the driver’s breath before giving him a roadside screening test, which he failed.

Police said testing at the police station detected more than double the legal limit in his system.
