Impaired Ontario driver hits car and then stops to eat chicken wings
An Ontario driver is facing charges for a series of bad decisions he made on the road last night, the final of which involved obliviously eating chicken wings in the middle of an intersection.
Bracebridge Ontario Provincial Police received a call around 9 p.m. Tuesday night about a motor vehicle that failed to remain at the scene of a collision after hitting a car on Muskoka Road 169 in Gravenhurst.
Before police could attend to the scene, they received a second call, approximately 30 minutes after the first, about a vehicle stopped in an intersection on Muskoka Road 169.
What police found when they arrived would surprise even the most seasoned of cops.
"When Police arrived the male driver was behind the wheel finishing his chicken wings, and he was unaware of the collision," said police in a news release.
