Woman drives off highway and into marsh near Oasis, BC

RCMP officers are appealing for witnesses after reports of a single vehicle incident on Highway 22, near Oasis on Tuesday, April 2.

A frontline Trail and Greater District RCMP officer responded to the call, where they found a 53-year-old Greenwood woman was still on scene and reportedly uninjured.

She told police that she was driving to Castlegar when her and her vehicle left the highway, flipped over, and crashed into a marsh. The vehicle ended up partially submerged.

The woman managed to exit the vehicle and received assistance from other motorists. The woman alleged that she was cut off by a black Dodge Ram truck which caused her to veer off the highway.

An officer seized drug use paraphernalia and one gram of a substance believed to be Fentanyl. The officer believed that drug impairment may be a factor in the cause of the crash.

“If you witnessed this incident or have dash cam footage, please contact the Trail Detachment at 250-364-2566 tpo speak to an investigator,” said Sgt. Wicentowich.
