BROCKVILLE – A driving mishap in Brockville has led to a woman being arrested – but it had nothing to do with her driving.

Brockville Police Sgt. Andrew Harvie told Brockville Newswatch the woman driving had ended up with her car perched on a snowbank on Wall Street (off 30 Pearl Street West) after trying to avoid a collision with another vehicle.

The car was about 1.2-1.5 meters (4-5 feet) off the ground.

There were no injuries in the collision around noon on Friday (March 15) outside the Rexall pharmacy.

However, the 52-year-old driver was arrested for a breach of a court undertaking.

No other information was immediately available as a full police report had not been completed.
