May 16, 2017 - 5:30 PM

PENTICTON - Penticton RCMP investigated two motor vehicle collisions earlier this week.

Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth says police responded to a collision on Highway 97 just north of Penticton early Sunday morning, May 14. The 23-year-old driver of a Ford Focus rear ended a tour bus.

No injuries were reported, but police charged the driver of the car with two counts of impaired driving. The Kelowna man was later released with a future court date.

RCMP and Kaleden Fire Department members responded to a rollover on Sheep Creek Road yesterday, May 15, Wrigglesworth says.

A 1993 Toyota Camry driven by a 53-year-old Olalla woman went off the road into the westbound ditch and rolled. The driver was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Wrigglesworth says no charges have been laid at this time, but police suspect distracted driving was a factor in the collision.
