Tiverton News – January, 2021

Inverhuron had a little excitement last week. Two people from the Niagara region missed the Highway 21 turn in Tiverton and drove down to the lake. Ignoring all the signs posted, they hit a shed, some trees and their vehicle ended up on its roof. No one was seriously hurt and the driver has been charged with many offences. What were these people doing here during lockdown? This isn’t the first time this has happened. A few years back, a tour bus missed the hwy 21 turn and ended up at the lake again. Maybe it’s time to make changes so this doesn’t happen again.
