KELOWNA – A crash between a 26-year-old driver and a 17-year-old driver in Glenmore Monday night resulted in extensive damage to both vehicles and impaired driving charges for one of the drivers.

According to Const. Kris Clark, RCMP were called to a two vehicle collision at Glenmore Road and Kane Road shortly after 7:40 p.m.

Witnesses told police they saw a northbound Ford Ranger enter the intersection on a yellow light where it was hit by a southbound Ford Fiesta making a left turn.

The collision spun the Fiesta onto the centre median but both drivers received only minor injuries.

The driver of the Fiesta, a 26-year-old man from Kelowna, showed signs of impairment and subsequently failed a roadside sobriety test.

Clark says in a release the man provided breath samples two and a half times the legal limit and faces potential charges of impaired driving.

The 17-year-old driver of the Ford Ranger was issued a ticket for failing to stop for a yellow light.
