Police attended the hospital and spoke with the woman, who had minor injuries. The woman was unable to provide police any information and appeared confused not due to the crash or intoxication, but some other underlying medical condition.

On May 29, a man reported that he had received threats from a 37 year-old man known to him that lived in Ashcroft. The 37-year-old claimed he would
come over with his two big cousins expecting payment for what was a volunteer event in Lillooet the previous weekend. The complainant stated he housed some of the volunteers during the event, including the 37-year-old. It was unclear why the 37-year-old believed he would be paid. Ashcroft RCMP spoke with the 37 year-old man who alleged that the complainant threatened to beat him up. Both parties warned to stay away from each other.
On May 29 at 4:30pm, Lillooet RCMP received a report of beer cans being thrown from a Dodge pickup truck on Hollywood Crescent.

The male driver admitted to drinking, and a roadside breathalyzer was administered. The driver blew two
FAIL readings. During that interaction with the driver, the passenger of the vehicle exited and became belligerent with police, including clenching his fists and bumping into a female police officer. The passenger was arrested for obstructing a peace officer. The vehicle was impounded for a mandatory 30 days, while the driver was issued a 90-day driving prohibition and his driver’s licence was seized. The matter was referred to RoadSafetyBC.
