A 23-year old 100 Mile House man is facing charges following a single vehicle accident in the South Cariboo that could have been much worse.
Corporal Brian Lamb says they were called to a collision on Friday on Highway 97 near the Exeter Truck Route…
“It was actually determined that the vehicle was travelling on Canim Hendrix lake road, entered the intersection, hit a concrete meridian and traffic sign before crossing highway 97 and coming to a rest in a turning lane.”
Lamb says it was extremely fortunate that there wasn’t a vehicle travelling on the Highway at the time.
He says the driver displayed symptoms of alcohol consumption and a roadside breath test was conducted which resulted in a fail.
The driver is now facing charges of Impaired Driving and Driving While Over .08
Lamb says this was a common theme over the weekend as there were a few incidents involving impaired drivers.
