Man convicted of impaired driving death facing new charges
The man convicted in the drunk driving death of an Amherstburg woman in 2008 is facing a new charge of impaired driving.
According to Middlesex OPP, 40-year-old Scott Matthew Renaud was charged following a crash on the 401 in London Saturday night.
Middlesex OPP Const. Liz Melvin says officers stopped a vehicle near Wellington Road around 6:30 p.m., following a driving complaint.
Police say officers were about to perform a roadside screening test when the driver fled and rolled his car a short distance away.
Renaud faces five charges, including impaired operation of a motor vehicle, flight from police and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
Renaud, who now lives in London, was sentenced two years in prison in February 2009 in the impaired driving crash that killed 22-year-old Jessica Ondejko.
It was revealed in court that Renaud was drunk and high on cocaine and painkillers at the time of the accident.
Renaud was set to appear in court in London Wednesday for a bail hearing.
The Special Investigations Unit is also probing the rollover.
