Charge expected in Montrose crash

Police are recommending a charge of driving while prohibited against a Fruitvale woman who struck a power pole.

Emergency crews responded to the crash last Friday evening in the 1000 block of Highway 3B in Montrose.

Police believe the 41-year-old was driving westbound when she suddenly veered off the road and hit the pole. They say fatigue may have been a factor.

The woman was prohibited from driving in BC at the time. She was arrested at the scene but released pending a Sept. 15 court appearance.

The man was issued a 24-hour roadside ban and his vehicle was impounded for a day.
