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.

O’Donaghey says the driver of the Mercedes CLS6 showed signs of impairment and alleges he refused to provide a breath sample. Charges have not yet been laid.

The driver was issued a driving prohibition under the Motor Vehicle Act and released on a promise to appear in court.
