A man alleged to be drug impaired while driving in a Kelowna crash that killed two people in 2019 is seeking bail.
According to police, during the early morning hours of Aug. 26, 2019, a minivan with three occupants crossed over two lanes of traffic on Highway 33 and crashed into some trees and a fence near Bryden Road.
The driver, 46-year-old Kory Douglas Mikalishen, was seriously injured but survived.
The impact, however, killed the minivan’s two passengers — a woman and a man.
The two people killed in the crash were Olya Trynova and Kraig Nicholas.
Mikalishen is facing six counts: two counts of dangerous driving causing death, two counts of impaired driving causing death and two drug-related counts of driving causing death.
Mikalishen, who is well known to police, is expected to be back in court next week.
