A Puslinch man and his mom are facing charges after police allege they encouraged his girlfriend to lie about him being involved in a serious collision over two years ago.
Investigators said two cars were racing on Woolwich Street in May 2021, when one of them got into a serious five-vehicle collision that injured a 14-year-old girl.
Police said the first vehicle left the scene.
Officers spoke to the girlfriend of the driver of the second vehicle and she reportedly gave them a statement minimizing his involvement.
In a second statement, police said she alleged that her boyfriend and his mother had encouraged her to lie about the collision.
A 22-year-old man and a 51-year-old woman turned themselves in on Saturday.
They’ll appear in court on Jan 5, 2024.
