‘Ottawa’ Smiths Falls Man Gives New Meaning to ‘drive-thru’ Garage
A Smiths Falls man was charged this week after crashing through his own garage and into a neighbour’s home.
Police were called on reports that a vehicle had crashed through a garage on Brockville Street and into a second home across the street.
The driver tried to dislodge his vehicle from the second residence but then fled on foot.
According to a news release Thursday, police tracked down the suspect a short distance away.
The man, 44, is charged with dangerous driving and failure to stop at the scene of the accident.
He was released on a promise to appear.
