A Pembroke man is facing some hefty charges after crashing into an OPP cruiser. The collision happened at around 9 pm on Wednesday after an officer with the Upper Ottawa Valley OPP was dispatched to investigate a suspicious person walking along Highway 148 in Laurentian Valley Township. Reports indicate that the officer had turned on his emergency lights and was heading west on Pembroke Street East when another driver attempted to pass. The driver's vehicle then collided with the cruiser but no injuries are being reported. A 42-year-old man has been charged with two impaired driving related offences, as well as for failing to have proper insurance and for failing to stop for an emergency vehicle. His vehicle was impounded for a week and his license suspended for 90 days. He is scheduled to appear in court on May 30th.
