Driver blows through Mandaumin Roundabout and goes airborne


Three people face drunk driving charges in Lambton County after three unrelated incidents – including one where a car hit the Mandaumin Road roundabout and went airborne.

Lambton OPP were called to the roundabout Sunday morning at 3 am along with Sarnia fire and the paramedics for a car crash.

Police say the car was going north on Lakeshore Road – instead of taking the roundabout, it went through the center, going airborne, then smashing through signs before stopping in a ditch.

Paramedics and the OPP took a man to hospital. Police believed he’d been drinking.

Curtis Marks, 20, has been charged with impaired driving.

When police arrived they tested for impaired driving.
