Police are conducting an impaired driving investigation following a two-vehicle collision in Spallumcheen Wednesday evening.

On Wednesday, October 26, 2022 around 8:30 p.m., police received a report of a two-vehicle collision on Highway 97 near the intersection of Irish Creek Road. Following an initial investigation, police have determined that the northbound Volkswagen crossed the center line of the highway and collided head on with a southbound Acura. At the scene, officers noted several signs of impairment on the woman who was allegedly driving the Volkswagen. She was arrested and transported to the detachment where she provided breath samples over twice the legal limit.

The 24-year old woman from Kamloops was released from custody and is scheduled to attend court at a later date. Minor injuries were reported to police at the time of the collision.

Once completed, the findings of the investigation will be forwarded to the BC Prosecution Service for their assessment of impaired driving charges.
