Windsor Police arrested a man after he started walking away from a crash that required five ambulances on Huron Church last night.

Emergency crews were called to Huron Church Road and Girardot Avenue and officers learned that one of the drivers was attempting to leave the scene on foot but was being followed by witnesses.

Officers were directed to yelling from a group in the 1000 block of Lena. Police say the suspect that had fled the accident scene was being held down by a witness.

He was arrested for Impaired Operation of a Motor Vehicle.

Police say that the 47-year-old suspect was driving a 2000 blue GMC pickup truck north on Huron Church Road. He made a left turn into the oncoming path of a 2011 Chevrolet passenger vehicle.

Both vehicles sustained extensive damage and were totalled in the collision.

A 40-year-old passenger in the suspect vehicle was complaining of pain to her entire body.

Police say the 20-year-old driver of the Chevrolet suffered a cut to his forehead. A 20-year-old passenger suffered a broken right arm. A 21-year-old passenger complained of pain to his entire body.

All of the injuries are non life threatening but the individuals were taken to hospital.

The 47-year-old suspect is charged with Impaired Operation of a Motor Vehicle Causing Bodily Harm, Exceed Blood Alcohol Level, and Fail to Remain.

He is expected to appear in court this afternoon.
