The driver of a Pontiac Grand Am that collided with a van near Stratford on Sunday evening and injured 10 people, including six children, is being charged with impaired driving causing bodily harm.
The 42-year-old woman is also facing charges of not providing a breath sample on demand and dangerous operation causing bodily harm, Ontario Provincial Police said Monday. The woman was also issued a 90-day driver's licence suspension.
