On June 18, 2017 at approximately 9:25 a.m., Wellington County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) was dispatched to a motor vehicle collision involving a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) and several cyclists on Victoria Road South, Township of Puslinch.
Investigation revealed that a Saturn SUV being operated by a female driver was behind a group of seven cyclists travelling approximately 30 km/h when the driver began to honk her horn at the cyclists. The motor vehicle then pulled out and passed the cyclists and cut back into their lane within two metres of the cyclists. The motor vehicle stopped suddenly forcing several of the cyclists to veer off the roadway to avoid colliding with the vehicle and several of the cyclists to collide into the back of the motor vehicle.
One of the cyclists sustained minor injuries from the collision.
70-year-old Lynn GLADSTONE from Guelph has been charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada and is to appear in Guelph Criminal Court August 8, 2017.
