Drunk crash on Westside Rd.

A drunk driver on Westside Road may have gotten the scare of his life when his truck went off the road Monday night.

Kelowna police say the 30-year-old man was driving a grey Dodge pickup and hauling an RV when it left the road, jack-knifing the trailer around 10:40 p.m.

Investigators at the scene noticed signs of impairment and took the driver to the Kelowna detachment where he was found to be over 2.5 times the legal limit.

The man was uninjured in the crash, and has a court date in November.
