A two-vehicle collision on Hwy 3a and Ootischenia road on Wednesday, Oct. 16 has resulted in a Castlegar man being charged with failing to yield to oncoming vehicle
Castlegar RCMP Officers, and the West Kootenay Integrated Road Safety Unit (IRSU), attended the scene at approximately 2:35 p.m.
“A vehicle being driven by a 45-year-old Castlegar man was making a left hand turn onto Ootischenia road when he was struck by a vehicle going straight on Hwy 3A,” said Sgt. Laurel Mathew in a release. “Neither driver suffered injuries in the crash. Charges under the Motor Vehicle Act are pending against the driver of the turning vehicle for failing to yield to an oncoming vehicle.”
Mathew said the driver of the second vehicle was arrested for obstruction by the IRSU Member when he failed to identify himself and obey police commands. He was later released with no charges once necessary information was obtained.
