Chilliwack: RCMP investigations of two auto crashes led police to impaired drivers.
Just after 8:15 p.m. on Saturday April 28, 2018 Chilliwack RCMP received a report that a truck crashed near the intersection of Camp River and Willbourn Roads. The crash quickly became an impaired driving investigation when a General Duty (GD) officer on scene noted alleged symptoms of intoxication in the 45 year old man from Chilliwack operating the vehicle.
Again shortly past midnight on April 29th a collision in the drive through line of a restaurant in the 5700-block of Vedder Road was reported to Chilliwack RCMP. At scene a Chilliwack Traffic Section investigator formed the opinion a 39 year old woman from Chilliwack allegedly driving one of the vehicles had consumed alcohol.
RCMP will be submitting all circumstances of the investigations in reports to the BC Prosecutors Service for their assessment of impaired driving and operating a motor vehicle over .08.
“Operating a motor vehicle with impaired judgment is a dangerous practice which jeopardizes the safety of the community. RCMP remain committed to removing these drivers from our roadways,” says Corporal Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD.
Chilliwack RCMP remind vehicle operators the choice to drive or not to drive is yours. When drinking be responsible and make the right choice.
