Suspected drunk driver causes crash

A 20-year-old Peachland man suffered serious injuries after he was involved in a collision with a suspected drunk driver on Sunday morning.

West Kelowna RCMP responded to reports of an erratic driver and subsequent collision in the 2800 block of Highway 97 South around 5:30 a.m. Witnesses reported seeing a grey Jeep Cherokee driving in the opposite lane with no headlights.

That vehicle struck a Pontiac G6 head-on near Gorman’s Mill. The driver of the Pontiac was rushed to hospital with serious head injuries, while the driver of the Jeep, an 18-year-old Osoyoos man, was taken to the Kelowna RCMP detachment where he provided breath samples in excess of the legal limit.

He now faces potential charges of impaired operation of a motor vehicle, driving while over .08 and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm.
