Police Dashcam Video, DRUNK DRIVER CRASH!

Added by AutomotiveUploads
Marc Despatie with the Timmins Police Service said the message "don't drink and drive" has become so staid and stale, it sometimes requires a jolt of reality to drive the warning home.

That was the organization's motivation behind posting a dash cam video of a suspected drunk driver in the moments before he crashed into a hydro pole on a crowded street.

"It's jarring, really," Depatie, a former uniformed officer told CBC's Up North.

"It's a broad daylight circumstance. This was the weekend of our kayak festival and there'd be an influx of traffic coming through the main artery, and pedestrians were making their way to and from this community event."

In the video, people can be seen overlooking a crowded bridge and walking unaware down Algonquin Boulevard. The driver swerves first in his own lane, then into oncoming traffic before crashing into a hydro pole.
