Police patrolled the area and located the described vehicle and driver, a 57-year-old woman from British Columbia. The officer determined that she was impaired by alcohol. She provided breath samples more than four times the legal limit.

Both drivers were issued driver’s licence suspensions and are set to attend court at later dates to face charges of impaired driving.
