On September 6, 2017 at approximately 7:47 a.m., a 21-year-old Cambridge man was operating a Honda eastbound on Summerfield Drive from Jensen Blvd.

The driver reports that he was temporarily blinded by the bright sun and struck a 2015 Chevrolet Equinox that was parked at the south curb of the roadway. The right front corner of the Honda became lodged in the left rear wheel well of the Chevrolet causing the Honda to "flip" onto its hood and come to rest on its roof.

The driver of the Honda suffered a minor hand injury and was not transported to hospital. The Chevrolet was unoccupied at the time of the collision. Both motor vehicles sustained extensive damage.

Speed was not a factor in this collision.

The driver of the Honda was charged with Careless Driving and will appear in the Guelph Provincial Offences Court in October.

In doing so, the driver turned across the path of a southbound Harley Davidson motorcycle operated by a 48-year-old Guelph man. That motorcycle struck the driver's door of the Mazda and the rider was ejected onto the roadway.

The driver of the Mazda has been charged with Turn Not in Safety.

The investigation is continuing.
