A nasty crash surprised Barrie’s Cumming Drive residents just before 11 p.m. Friday night.
Witnesses in the Ferndale Drive-Essa Road-area neighbourhood saw a vehicle hit cars parked along the street, until it finally stopped between two homes. A fire burst out on the vehicle, so the fire department was called to put it out.
The driver was arrested and charged with impaired operation of a vehicle. Police said the driver was taken back to the station for a Breathalyzer, which read twice the legal limit of alcohol; he was held in custody until he sobered up.
