KINCARDINE - A South Bruce OPP officer who police said drove his police cruiser through an intersection against a red light and struck another car last July, is expected to resolve his case June 7.

South Bruce OPP Const. Murray Woodman was issued a ticket for driving through a red light. His case was spoken to March 15 in Walkerton Provincial Offences court and was put over for a resolution, court staff said.

An OPP news release issued in September said the incident took place July 28 a 3:20 p.m. at Highway 21 and Durham St. in Kincardine. The officer's emergency lights and siren were activated when he struck another vehicle.

The officer received minor injuries and the driver of the other car was uninjured, the news release said. Both cars sustained minor damage. The 28-year police officer was issued a ticket under the Highway Traffic Act and was summoned to court. ... g-to-court
