A Castlegar man has been arrested for impaired driving related to a collision that snarled traffic on Columbia Avenue Tuesday afternoon.
Sgt. Darren Oelke said the Castlegar RCMP responded to the two-vehicle collision in the 3200 block of Columbia at about 2:30 p.m. Jan. 8.
Police determined that a northbound SUV had made a left turn in front of an oncoming vehicle, striking it head on.
“Luckily, there were no injuries to the occupants,” Oelke said Wednesday.
The 31-year-old driver of the SUV was arrested for suspected impaired driving and subsequently released to appear in court on March 13.
RCMP are asking any witnesses who have not spoken to the police to contact the Castlegar RCMP at (250) 365-7721.
