ATV Driver’s Buddy Charged With Misleading Police

Suspect Claimed He Was Driving ATV At Time of Crash

A little misdirection didn’t stop South Simcoe Police. Around 6:00 last evening, officers got reports of an ATV crash in Alcona. They arrived on scene to find witnesses telling them the ATV driver had been hurt, but a 25-year-old man approached and said he’d been driving the ATV and all is good. It was quickly learned the real ATV driver was already at hospital, while the man allegedly covering for him was charged with Obstructing Police.
