An Oshawa man faces several driving-related charges, including flight from police, following an incident just east of Peterborough on Tuesday morning.
According to Peterborough County OPP, around 10:50 a.m., an officer attempted to stop a vehicle that allegedly failed to stop at a red light along Highway 7 in Otonabee-South Monaghan Township.
Const. Joe Ayotte says the vehicle fled the scene but was not pursued due to “concern for public safety.”
