Two impaired driving incidents in two days ended in collisions, one with a four-year-old girl on board.
That roll-over happened just before 3:30 p.m. Monday on Highway 52 near the traffic circle at Jerseyville Road. Police found a Ford Explorer on its side. The driver and his young daughter were able to get out of the car, police said in a release.
The father was not injured but his daughter was taken to hospital as a precaution. When police were questioning him about the roll-over at the hospital, an officer smelled alcohol on his breath. The driver did a breathalyzer test and failed, police said.
The 34-year-old Ancaster man was charged with driving with over 80 mg, and later released on a promise to appear in court. His daughter was released from the hospital and went home with her grandmother.
In an incident early Sunday morning, a driver rear-ended a Hamilton Taxi cab at a red light at Queenston Road and Woodman Drive.
The cab was stopped at the light, police said. The driver of the other car got out and ran away after he hit the cab. Police found the man about 100 metres south from where the accident happened on Woodman Drive.
The driver did a breathalyzer test and failed, showing he had two times to legal limit of alcohol in his system.
The 45-year-old driver from Stoney Creek was arrested and charged with impaired driving, and later released on a promise to appear.
