100 Mile RCMP checked the vehicle at the intersection of Highway 24 and Highway 97 Saturday.

Inexperience, Driver Error, Fatigue Contributing Factors in MVIs

100 Mile RCMP responded to three single-vehicle collisions from Tuesday, Feb 12 to Friday, February 15.

McLean said the female driver of a Mercedes was unable to negotiate the left turn and slid up onto the traffic island and hit a light standard at the intersection of Highway 97 and Exeter Road.

The driver was not injured. Driver inexperience and vehicle equipment are believed to be contributing factors.

On Thursday, Feb. 14 police and emergency crews responded to a single vehicle collision on Highway 97 near Ainsworth Road, south of 100 Mile House.

The driver of a Ford F150 lost control of her vehicle, causing it to go across the oncoming lanes and come to rest in the ditch.

The female driver was transported to hospital for an assessment.

McLean said driver error is believed to be a contributing factor.

On Friday, Feb. 15  RCMP and emergency crews responded to a report of a single vehicle in the ditch near Davis Road and Highway 97.

The male driver lost control of the vehicle causing it to go off the highway and down a 60-foot embankment.

“The driver was recovered from the vehicle and taken by ambulance to 100 Mile hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries,” McLean said.

“Driver fatigue is believed to be a contributing factor in this collision.”
