PENTICTON - No one was seriously hurt in a pair of single vehicle crashes in Penticton last week.

In the first incident, a suspected drunk driver rolled a Subaru Impreza when he hit gravel and lost control while attempting to pass a truck on Naramata Road around 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 4, according to RCMP spokesperson Don Wrigglesworth. The Subaru ended up in the ditch.

Wrigglesworth says the four passangers and the 25-year-old driver from Quebec escaped serious injuries. The driver failed a roadside sobriety test and was issued a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition while the vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

On Friday, Oct. 6 at approximately 7 p.m., Wrigglesworth says a Christina Lake resident was driving a Chevy Cavalier on Green Lake Road when she lost control of the vehicle while looking at the stereo.

The vehicle went off the road, coming to rest against a tree on an embankment above Green Lake. No one was hurt.
