RCMP say a head-on collision last week near Four Mile was the result of aggressive driving.
Shortly after noon on Wednesday, a 30-year-old man staying near Kaslo was northbound on Highway 3A in a Pontiac G6 that crossed the centre line coming out of a curve.
An oncoming Toyota Camry was unable to avoid the vehicle, resulting in a crash that shut the road down for just over an hour.
The Camry was driven by a 63-year-old woman who received non-life threatening
injuries and her 72-year-old male passenger received minor injuries. Both are Nelson residents.
The driver of the northbound vehicle received minor injuries.
Sgt. Chad Badry said in a news release that investigation determined that aggressive driving and speed were the major contributing factors to the collision. Road and weather conditions were not factors.
The driver of the Pontiac G6 was later issued a violation ticket for multiple offences.
“The RCMP encourage members of the public to call police when they witness aggressive driving with as much detail as possible about the offending vehicle,” Badry said. “This type of driving puts everyone at risk.”
