RCMP Report: Squirrel causes crash

The vehicle was difficult to see due to being buried under the trees it had felled

On June 4, police were called to a single vehicle collision. A vehicle had gone over the bank north of Vavenby near Mad River Bridge.

It took rescue crews time to locate the vehicle, which was difficult to see due to being buried under the trees it had felled while crashing down the bank.

The driver and only occupant was uninjured but was unable to climb back up the bank to the road and required assistance.

The driver said that a squirrel had been on the road and the driver had swerved to avoid it.

The driver was checked and found to be impaired by alcohol.

The driver was issued a 90-day driving prohibition. The vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

On June 8, police checked a vehicle in Clearwater after it failed to signal a turn and found that the driver was impaired by alcohol.
