A Trail woman was luckily uninjured after crashing into a snowbank in the wee hours of Sunday morning, according to RCMP Sgt. Mike Wicentowich.

“On Feb. 17 at 12:57 a.m., the Trail and Greater District RCMP Detachment conducted an investigation into a 31-year-old female driver and her vehicle after the officer became suspicious that she was driving while impaired on Second Avenue in Trail,” he said in a press release Wednesday.. 

“Before the police officer could stop the driver using the emergency lights and siren, the driver crashed her vehicle into a snow bank and trees on the side of the road.” 

The woman, a Trail resident, didn’t require medical attention.

“The vehicle sustained minor damaged from the accident,” Wicentowich said. “The police conducted an investigation into the alleged impaired driving by the driver (and) issued her an Immediate Roadside Prohibition and her vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

“The Trail and Greater District RCMP Detachment continue the campaign against impaired driving in an effort to make the road safer for everyone.”
