Oshawa man assaults snowplow driver, charged

Durham Police said a 32-year-old male is facing charges after assaulting a snowplow driver last Saturday.

On March 4 at about 9:30 pm, members of East Division were called to the area of Wilson Road and Greenhill Avenue in Oshawa after a snowplow driver and a homeowner got into an altercation.

A pile of snow blocked the male’s driveway after last week’s snowstorm causing him to become upset and ultimately assaulting the snowplow driver, police said.

The 32-year old has been charged with assault, and was released on an undertaking.
