At 545 a.m. on March 4, Salmo RCMP members responded to a report of a two vehicle head on collision on Hwy 3 just outside of Salmo, according to RCMP detachment commander Cpl. Darryl Orr.
"The two vehicles involved were destroyed in the collision but, luckily, the occupants of the vehicles only sustained minor injuries," Orr said.
He said initial investigation indicates the east bound vehicle crossed the center line, causing the collision.
"After dealing with the drivers of each vehicle the attending Salmo RCMP member suspected that the driver of the vehicle that crossed the center line was impaired by drugs," he added.
"This impaired driving collision is currently under investigation and the Salmo RCMP are asking that anyone who witnessed this collision please contact the detachment at 250-357-2212."
