The 48-year-old male driver, of Trail, lost control of his vehicle, crossed the highway, and smashed into the rock bluffs. An investigation was conducted into the driver and had evidence to suggest that he was under the influence of a drug while in operation of his vehicle.

• On Sunday, July 19, at 3:01 a.m., officers with the Trail detachment conducted a road safety check stop and investigated a 25-year-old Trail woman for driving while allegedly impaired by alcohol. The woman allegedly failed a roadside screening device test administered by an RCMP officer. She was issued a 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition and had her vehicle impounded for 30 days.

• On Sunday, July 19, at 10:50 a.m., officers with the Trail detachment responded to a disturbance of a naked 31-year-old female of Nelson, screaming underneath the Victoria Street bridge. RCMP located the woman who was in distress. Police report that she was unable to return to her home in Nelson. RCMP assisted the female in contacting a friend who picked her up and drove her home.
