Salmon Arm RCMP are recommending charges of assault causing bodily harm be laid after a incident in which a woman appears to have been thrown from a moving vehicle.
On Nov. 13, at approximately 6:20 p.m. police responded to a call that a woman needed help in the area of Auto Road.
A witness told police the door of a car in front of him opened and a woman fell out, hitting the side of his truck as she rolled down the street. The woman was ushered back into the car, but drove away from the scene before police arrived.
RCMP officers located the 44-year-old woman three hours later and had ambulance personnel attend to her injuries. The victim claimed to have been thrown from the car by another occupant of the vehicle.
Police say they have determined the identify of a male suspect and are recommending that Provincial Crown counsel charge him with assault causing bodily harm. The victim is expected to make a full recovery.
