York Regional Police is looking for witnesses after an SUV operated by an impaired driver crashed into a bus shelter in Richmond Hill last week.

According to police, on Tuesday, December 11, 2018, shortly after 2:30 pm, officers responded to a collision on Bayview Avenue at the Highway 407 off ramp.

A black Dodge Durango had driven off the road and into a transit shelter, narrowly missing two people that were waiting for a bus, who left prior to police arrival.

Investigators are requesting anyone who witnessed the collision, in particular the people that were in the transit shelter at the time, as well as anyone who witnessed the Dodge Durango driving prior to the collision, to please come forward and contact police.

The driver was identified as 49-year-old Wayne Quinlan, who was arrested and has been charged.

The legal consequences of an impaired driving charge can include roadside vehicle impoundment and automatic driver’s licence suspension, as well as further consequences imposed by the courts, including longer licence suspensions, large fines and in some cases, jail time.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the #2 District Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-866-876-5423, ext.7241.
