Drinking and driving still against the law

A 20 year old Kelowna man involved in an early-morning Tuesday crash on Highway 33  faces potential impaired driving charges after blowing over twice the legal limit.

The Kelowna RCMP received a report of a multiple vehicle collision on Highway 33 at Hollywood Road, Sept. 4 at 6 a.m.

"Witnesses indicated that a yellow Audi was eastbound on Highway 33 when it attempted to make a left-hand turn at Hollywood Road despite the oncoming traffic," said Const. Kris Clark.

"A westbound Chevy pickup impacted the Audi, with the force of the collision redirecting the truck into a traffic light pole on Hollywood Road."

The driver apparently smelled of liquor, failed a roadside test, and later provided breath samples of more than twice the legal limit.

The 20 year old Kelowna man was released on a Promise to Appear for Court in December and faces potential impaired driving charges.
