Traffic cones hit; man charged with impaired


A Harrow man faces impaired driving charges following a single-vehicle mishap on Highway 401 Saturday.

The OPP say they got the call shortly before 9:30 a.m. of a report of a car hitting reflective traffic cones along the eastbound lanes of the highway near the 71-km marker.

An officer spotted a vehicle matching the description stopped about 40 kilometres further up the highway, police say.

As a result, a 42-year-old Harrow man is charged with impaired driving.
