The driver of a high-end McLaren Spider sports car is facing impaired driving charges after he crashed into a hydro box on a tree-lined residential street in Burlington late Thursday night.
It happened on Oaklands Park Court at around 11:50 p.m.
A passenger in the vehicle sustained non-life threatening injuries in the crash, police say.
Meanwhile, the 23-year-old driver was charged with impaired driving causing bodily harm and over 80 causing bodily harm. He has been held for a bail hearing in Hamilton later this morning.
