A single-vehicle accident in Vernon Monday resulted in some injuries and two violation tickets to the registered owner of the car involved.

RCMP were called to Bella Vista Road, across from Planet Bee, just before 9 p.m.

“A black Nissan Sentra was found to be off-road to the left,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

“There was a group of people standing around near the vehicle. A couple of people were slightly injured but nobody in the group admitted to being the driver.”

Upon investigation, police discovered that one of the people standing around near the crash site was the registered owner of the Nissan, a 24-year-old man from Armstrong, who happened to have a warrant issued for his arrest on an unrelated matter.

The man was given two violation tickets, failing to keep right and driving without consideration.

Police are investigating to see if speed and alcohol were possible factors in the crash which resulted in the car crashing into a fence.
