A Longford, Ont., woman has been charged with impaired driving and failure to remain at the scene of a crash following a collision in Peterborough on Friday morning.

The Peterborough Police Service says an officer was on patrol on Aylmer Street at around 2:10 a.m. The officer noticed a northbound vehicle was missing a front passenger-side tire, police say.

According to police, a subsequent traffic stop and breath test showed the driver had more than twice the legal limit of alcohol in her system while driving.
