Ditching his vehicle

At 3:15 a.m. on Sunday, March 9, a Salmon Arm RCMP member noticed a vehicle upside down in the ditch near the Salmon River Bridge. As police approached the scene, a taxi cab was seen leaving the area. Police noted a single set of footprints from the collision site to where the taxi had been noted. The passenger in the taxi was determined to be the registered owner of the crashed vehicle and was intoxicated.

The 28-year-old man from Tappen was transported to hospital where he refused medical treatment. He subsequently provided samples of his breath indicating twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system. Charges are pending.
