A man went on a wild ride from Summerland to Kelowna Tuesday afternoon, ramming into multiple vehicles and generally wreaking havoc, RCMP said.

West Kelowna and Kelowna RCMP were notified March 30, just after 1 p.m., that an erratic driver in a silver BMW car was headed towards West Kelowna from the Summerland area, according to an RCMP media release.

The suspect vehicle had allegedly refused to stop for police in the South Okanagan and was reportedly driving in a dangerous manner.

The vehicle entered Kelowna and continued driving dangerously, striking numerous parked vehicles in the downtown area.

Given the danger to the public, RCMP officers forcibly stopped the vehicle on KLO Road near Lowe Street. The male driver was taken into custody at that time.

Officers are trying to locate all the damaged vehicles and property.

RCMP are asking anyone who has been affected to call 250-762-3300 and cite file 2021-17724.
