London police have charged a 29-year-old woman after a crash at Gladstone and Russell avenues on Thursday morning.
Emergency crews were called to the intersection around 8:30 a.m. following a crash involving a car and a motorcycle.
The motorcycle rider, a 50-year-old London man, suffered life-threatening injuries and remains in hospital in critical condition.
The driver of the car, Amber McCabe of London, was arrested at the scene for impaired driving and taken to police headquarters.
However, police say she refused to participate in a drug recognition evaluation. She also did not have current insurance for her vehicle.
In addition, while being searched, police say she was found to be in possession of another person's wallet and GPS, both taken from different vehicles the night before.
As a result, McCabe has been charged with:
- impaired operation of motor vehicle causing bodily harm
- refusing to submit to drug evaluation
- two counts of possession of property obtained by crime
- drive - no insurance
She was scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
