Police seeking witnesses in Coldstream incident

Vernon RCMP are asking for witnesses to come forward in an alleged case of reckless driving Wednesday in Coldstream.

A small red 2003 Dodge SX car took off driving in front of a police dog handler going to a disturbance call at 3:30 p.m. near Kal Lake Store.

Police say the vehicle would not pull over when the officer activated his lights and the vehicle sped up and began driving on the wrong side of the road into the path of oncoming vehicles.

The officer pulled back and followed from a safe distance, but lost the vehicle after it turned on Aberdeen Road.

The owner of the car was located a short time later and spoken to.

Police are asking for anybody who saw the Dodge being driven between Kal Lake Store and Aberdeen Road to call them at 250-545-7171.
