Two people face theft charges following a crash on Highway 115 south of Peterborough, Ont., earlier this week.
According to Peterborough County OPP, around 11 p.m. on Tuesday, March 14, officers responded to reports that an SUV had entered the highway’s centre median just south of County Road 10 in Cavan-Monaghan Township.
Officers located two occupants who police said were unable to “fully explain” how they ended up in the median. Further investigation determined the vehicle had been reported stolen earlier that day from the City of Kawartha Lakes.
