At approximately 3 pm, police were alerted to a possible impaired driver leaving a business. When RCMP eventually caught up to the vehicle, it was believed to have also been involved in a collision earlier that day. The driver, a 20-year-old female from Powell River, displayed signs of impairment. She was returned to the detachment where a breathalyzer test was conducted. The female is now facing several criminal code charges including operating a vehicle with a blood-alcohol level over .08.
