Owner of crashed car reports to police
The owner of a car that crashed into a utility pole on Aug. 19 has contacted Kamloops RCMP, who in turn have issued the man a violation ticket for failure to remain at the scene of the crash.
There will be no further police investigation unless the ticket is disputed.
The registered owner of the 2005 Pontiac Sunfire, which was involved in a single-vehicle crash in the 1800-block of Parkcrest Avenue at about 9:45 p.m. on Aug. 19, went to the RCMP detachment on Aug. 21.
Following the crash, residents nearby called police and went to try to help the victim, but no one was inside the vehicle.
Investigators arrived and noted both airbags had been deployed. There was a major indentation on the windshield behind the wheel, likely caused by the driver Learned said a resident told police he went outside and spoke with a man he described as dazed and confused.
The registered owner is a 51-year-old man who lives in the 1900-block of Parkcrest Avenue.
