Alleged hit-and-run by impaired driver in Warfield

File # 2024-1621

On April 26, 2024, at 5:37 p.m., a frontline Trail and Greater District officer received a report about hit-and-run incident involving a 30-year-old Castlegar woman driving her vehicle in the 600 block of Kipling Street, in Warfield, BC.

The woman was allegedly driving her vehicle at a high rate of speed while cornering when she crashed into a parked vehicle. The woman left the scene of the incident immediately after the incident. The officer received additional reports about the woman was allegedly driving dangerously and erratically in the Warfield area before and after the incident.

While at the scene, the officer observed the woman and her vehicle with extensive front end damage driving on the road toward him and his marked police vehicle. The officer used his marked police vehicle to block the road and detain the woman and her vehicle roadside. The officer arrested the woman for Dangerous Driving contrary to Section 320.13 of the Criminal Code. The woman denied this to the officer then attempted to flee the scene on foot. After a brief struggle, the officer handcuffed and secured the woman in the rear of his police vehicle.

The officer made observations that lead him to believe the woman’s ability to operate a motor vehicle was impaired by alcohol. A demand was read to the woman, who refused to provide a sample of breath roadside.

The 30-year-old Castlegar woman was issued a 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition (IRP) under Section 215 of the BC Motor Vehicle Act and had her vehicle impounded for up to 30 days.

The matter remains under investigation.

Trail RCMP would like to speak to anyone who witnessed this incident and anyone who witnessed this vehicle driving around in the Warfield area, says Sgt. Wicentowich
