Park Ave. crash nets hefty fine, 15-month driving ban

A fine and lengthy driving ban is the penalty for a man who ended a night of heavy drinking by causing a crash that sent a man to hospital.

Jurgen Brandon Trout, 21, pleaded guilty on Thursday to driving with a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit. He was fined $1,800 and banned from driving for 15 months.

Shortly before noon on Dec. 14, Trout was driving a pickup truck when it collided with a car in the 300-block of Park Avenue.

A man in the smashed-up car was taken to hospital but later discharged with minor injuries.

At the scene, a witness told police that the truck was travelling north along the back lane and didn’t stop when it turned onto Park Avenue. The truck entered the path of the oncoming car.

Trout walked up to police and said he was the driver of the truck. He asked if he was going to lose his licence and admitted the crash was his fault.

Tests put his blood-alcohol level far above the legal limit and he acknowledged that he’d been drinking with buddies during the previous night. Between them, they drank five cases of 24 beer, and Trout estimates he downed 25 to 30 beer.

He’d slept at some point and thought he was OK to drive when he gave a friend a ride.
