Failing To Negotiate Turning Into Driveway


On November 11, 2017, shortly before 3:00 a.m., members from the East Algoma Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Detachment responded to a single motor vehicle collision near the junction of Highway 17 and McFadden Drive west of the Town of Thessalon.

Investigation determined a westbound vehicle was travelling on Highway 17 when it attempted to pull into a private driveway and misjudged the driveway and drove directly into the ditch. The female driver did not receive any injuries and her vehicle was towed.

As a result of the investigation, Lynn LILLIE, 54 years of age from Thessalon, Ontario was issued a provincial offence notice and charged with: Unsafe Move-Lane or Shoulder contrary to section 154(1)(a) of the Highway Traffic Act.
