A 55-year-old man is facing drunk driving and stunt driving charges after getting seriously hurt in a crash in Chatham-Kent.

Chatham-Kent police were called to Duart Road and Cochrane Line for a single motor vehicle collision at 8:40 p.m. on May 22.

Police say a man driving a Chevrolet Venture minivan lost control and crashed into a ditch. He was the only person in the vehicle and was seriously injured.

He was transported to Four Counties Hospital and later airlifted to the London Health Sciences Centre.

The investigation revealed the driver had consumed alcohol and was travelling over 130 kilometres an hour in an 80 km/hour zone, according to police.

Michael Smith, 55, of Rose Beach Line in Morpeth has been charged with driving with an excess blood alcohol concentration and stunt driving. His driver's licence has been suspended for 90 days in accordance with Ontario's Administrative Driver's Licence Suspension program.

He is scheduled to appear in criminal court in August.
