VERNON - Police say a woman arrested for drunk driving may be responsible for three crashes that happened Sunday night.

Mounties received a number of calls over the night, including a complaint of someone sideswiping a car stopped at a red light near Kal Tire Place.

The incident was reported to police at about 11 p.m. Nov. 8. The driver of the stopped car told police the other car whipped through the red light at the intersection at more than 90 km/h, sideswiped the driver's side of his car and continued west on 43 Avenue at a high rate of speed. The suspect vehicle, a grey Chevy Cavalier was found on Old Kamloops Road with severe damage. The driver of the Chevy was arrested for impaired driving, according to a media release.

"It was learned that this vehicle was also involved in another collision just after running into the vehicle by Kal Tire Place," RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk says. "Our officers conducted an impaired driving investigation."

The 22-year-old woman police believe was behind the wheel was apparently involved in three collisions over the night that include damage to a median and shearing off of a yield sign.

"Luckily there were no injuries reported in any of these incidents," Molendyk says.
