Two drivers were charged last month, and one was charged in September, for slamming into farm vehicles on roadways.
Last month, 35-year-old Travis Bakker of Woodstock was charged after rear-ending a tractor hauling a gravity bin full of soybeans. He was uninjured in the accident, but failed a breathalyzer test and was charged with impaired driving.
Windsor resident Robert Patrick St. John hit a tractor being driven by a 60-year-old St. Catharines man. St. John rear-ended the tractor as they were both going west on Hwy 3, heading towards Jarvis. Neither driver was seriously injured, but St. John was charged with failure to yield.
In late September, a 20-year-old Bradford woman ended up in a Toronto hospital after a collision with a farm tractor. Her westbound car collided with an eastbound tractor, and she ended up having to be extracted by firefighters from her car after it ended up in the ditch. She was sent to hospital in serious, but stable, condition. She was not charged. The driver of the tractor wasn’t injured.
Earlier in the month, another driver was charged after colliding with a tractor. A 30-year-old man from Norfolk County was driving west on 4th Concession Road at South Walsingham, in the south of the County. A 39-year-old woman attempted to pass him as he turned into a laneway. Neither were injured, but she was charged with failure to yield.
