According to OPP Highway Safety Division, a 36-year-old motorist was stopped and charged after allegedly crashing into a Toronto OPP vehicle near Warden Avenue while fleeing a similar incident on Keele Street on Wednesday morning.

This is one of many accidents to happen on GTA roads this week, and the recent barrage of wintry weather has only made driving conditions worse.
Another impaired driver managed to get his car between two safety barriers at an on/off-highway ramp near Dixon Road early Monday morning.
