Car flips, impaired driver charged

A 29-year-old Calgary woman is facing impaired driving charges after a Nov. 15 crash on Alder Street that left one car upside down in the front yard and two other vehicles heavily damaged in the driveway.

Just before 2 a.m. police responded to the accident in the 100 block of Alder. The driver was located at the scene being tended to by witnesses and BC Ambulance. An odour of liquor was detected on the female driver’s breath. A screening device was used and resulted in a fail reading. The driver was treated at hospital and released. Breath samples were then obtained resulting in readings one and a half times over the legal limit.

This incident was one of 246 calls for service handled by the Campbell River RCMP last week.
