A woman is facing impaired driving charges after she allegedly drove head-on into a parked police cruiser and attempted to flee the scene.

No one was injured in the crash on Highway 7, between Trafalgar Road and Main Street North in Georgetown, which happened shortly before 4 a.m., according to Staff Sgt. Paul Davies, spokesperson for Halton Regional Police. Georgetown, northwest of Toronto, is a community in the town of Halton Hills.

The driver, a 24-year-old Georgetown, Ont. woman, is facing two impaired driving charges.

An officer had stopped his car on the side of the highway, facing westbound, when an eastbound Hyundai Tucson SUV came around a curve in the road and allegedly struck the cruiser "at a high rate of speed," Davies said.

Homicide victim was a loving mother who kept her family together: grandmother

Homicide victim was a loving mother who kept her family together: grandmother The death of Shaylnne Marie Hunter has left her family grieving, and it isn't the first time tragedy has struck. Gloria Lebold, grandmother to the mother of four, lost her grandson Cody Severight in October 2017 when he was struck and killed by off-duty Winnipeg police officer Justin Holz. Holz has been charged with impaired driving causing death, fleeing the scene of a crash, driving causing death, dangerous driving and driving with a blood alcohol content over the legal limit. Before that, Lebold says, she lost two of her own daughters: one died five years ago, while the other died around 20 years ago, she says.

A motorist has been charged with impaired after colliding with a police cruiser head - on in Scarborough’s Malvern neighbourhood on Friday Toronto police say officers were in a cruiser on Sheppard Avenue East near Brenyon Way just before midnight when a vehicle struck them head - on .

A 55-year-old woman has been charged with impaired driving after a head - on collision in Oakville, Ont., that killed a 47-year-old woman who was a passenger in her twin-brother’s car , police say. The tragic crash happened at 9:05 p.m. on Saturday night

No one was taken to hospital. Davies said the officer was not injured mostly likely because the crash triggered air bags in the cruiser. The woman, who was driving the vehicle, and her two male passengers were not injured either.

"The ambulance wasn't called. Nobody was complaining of any pain or injuries. We were lucky," Davies said.

Davies said the woman allegedly drove away from the scene in an eastbound direction but a second Halton police officer was able to stop her.

"It appeared that the SUV made an attempt to flee the scene. However, due to damage, it was not able to get too far and another officer was able to intercept that vehicle," Davies said.

Officers arrested the woman at the scene. She provided a breath sample and has been charged with operation while impaired and having a blood alcohol concentration at or over 80 mgs per 100 ml of blood within two hours of driving.

She was released on a promise to appear and is due to appear in a Milton courtroom on July 8.

Highway 7, which was closed in both directions between Trafalgar Road and Main Street North, has been reopened.

School bus driver could face child endangerment, impaired driving charges, police says.
A witness says he saw a school bus drive on the left side of the road. Jasen Courtepatte said he called police and followed it after it hit a street sign and didn't stop.
