ENDERBY - Charges have been laid in connection to a serious head-on car crash near Enderby last week.

According to court documents, Shawn Nelson Grant has been charged with dangerous driving causing bodily harm and driving while prohibited in relation to a Sept. 28 crash that sent a Salmon Arm woman to hospital with serious injuries. He is also charged with possessing a break-in instrument and possession of stolen property under $5,000.

Grant, 39, is currently being held in custody awaiting a scheduled bail hearing on Oct. 5 in Vernon Provincial Court.

The collision happened just north of Enderby on Highway 97A when a northbound Ford Explorer crossed the centre line and struck a southbound truck driven by a 58-year-old Salmon Arm woman, police said in a Sept. 28 media release. The Aldergrove man was arrested on outstanding warrants and investigated for impaired driving. 

A Go Fund Me account has been created for the injured Salmon Arm woman, who is described as having broken a number of bones but being in stable condition in hospital.

Anyone with information who has not spoken to police is asked to contact North Okanagan Traffic Services at 250-838-6818, or via Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
