OSOYOOS - Police are blaming speed for a collision at Bobcat Court Highway 3 in Osoyoos last weekend.

Osoyoos RCMP say a semi-truck and trailer were moving at a high rate of speed before flipping onto its side April 18, 2014. A car was damaged in the accident when it hit debris from trailer. 

The truck driver received minor scratches to his hip and the driver and passenger of the car were unhurt.

The male truck driver, 41, from Surrey was charged with driving without due care and attention.
