Drugs thought to be a factor in Sunday MVI

A Trail man will likely be facing charges after a crash Sunday that police believe to be drug-related, according to Trail top cop Mike Wicentowich.

“On Feb. 10 at 5:50 p.m., the Trail and Greater District RCMP Detachment responded to a call of a two-car collision at the intersection of Victoria Street and Cedar Avenue, in downtown Trail,” he said in a press release. “The alleged offender, a 26-year-old male driver, t-boned the other vehicle in the intersection and then continued eastbound along Victoria Street, bouncing his vehicle off the bridge numerous times before coming to a stop near 2 Avenue. The 26-year-old male driver was found to be non-responsive by the Trail Fire Department and BC Ambulance and had to be resuscitated. Both drivers were taken to the hospital for treatment for their injuries.”

Both drivers have since been released from hospital.

“The RCMP conducted an investigation into cause of the accident … (and) determined that the impairment by a drug of the 26-year-old driver was a factor in the accident. 

“The RCMP will continue to investigative the matter and charges will be forward to Crown Counsel for approval once the investigation is completed.”
