A Lake Country man could be facing impaired driving charges following a single-vehicle rollover accident on Glenmore Road Wednesday morning.

Impaired charges possible after Lake Country accident

The incident occurred in the 9000 block of Glenmore Road

A Lake Country man faces potential impaired driving charges after he rolled his vehicle and injured himself Wednesday.

At 4:29 a.m., the RCMP responded to a single-vehicle rollover in the 9000 block of Glenmore Road.

“A witness reported that the grey Volkswagen Golf lost control before it literally flew into the air, flipping onto its roof,” said Const. Jesse O’Donaghey.

“Police detected an odour of liquor on the driver’s breath and initiated an impaired driving investigation. The driver blew a fail during a test using a roadside screening device but required medical attention and was taken to Kelowna General Hospital for treatment.”

The 22-year-old man was later released from hospital and was taken to the Kelowna RCMP detachment where he provided samples of his breath in excess of the legal limit.

He faces potential charges of impaired driving and drive while over .08. He has since been released to appear in court at a later date.
