KELOWNA - Police say a man is facing charges in connection with a collision in downtown Kelowna.
RCMP Const. Jesse O’Donaghey says in a media release a 23-year-old Kelowna man is alleged to have crossed the centre line at Clement Avenue and St. Paul Street and collided with a Dodge Caravan around 9 p.m. on Feb. 27.
Police say the four occupants of the van were treated at the scene and then taken to Kelowna General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
