Peel paramedic charged with impaired driving causing death granted bail

Emergency crews were called to the area of Maple Grove Drive and Lakeshore Road East at around 3 a.m. to investigate a report of a person knocking on doors.

A 22-year-old Peel paramedic has been charged with impaired driving causing death after a man’s body was pulled from Lake Ontario in Oakville where a vehicle entered the water on Monday.

Upon arrival at the scene, officers said they discovered that a vehicle entered the lake after crashing through a metal barrier at the dead end of Maple Grove Drive.

Authorities confirmed Monday afternoon that a mans body recovered from the water was a passenger in the vehicle. He has been identified as Shawn Harpur, a 27-year-old Mississauga resident.

The body of a 27-year-old man, who was a passenger inside the vehicle at the time, was later located by search and rescue teams.

After arriving on scene, police said the officers located a man and discovered a collision had occurred that resulted in a vehicle entering Lake Ontario from a dead-end street.

The paramedic, identified by OPSEU 277 as Aaron Dobbs of Welland, has been charged with impaired driving causing death and refusing to provide a breath sample.

Our thoughts are with the families of those impacted, the union said. We are unable to comment further as the matter is before the courts.

The Peel Paramedic Union also tweeted confirmation Tuesday morning and union president Dave Wakely said they would not be commenting beyond that statement.

He left the Milton courthouse before noon and appeared to be limping while walking to a vehicle with family members, according to a CTV News Toronto reporter.
