A driver who allegedly failed to stop for police in the South Okanagan was finally arrested in Kelowna on Tuesday afternoon, but not before leaving damaged vehicles and property in his wake, according to RCMP.
Police said the silver BMW began its journey in Summerland, where it was seen being driven dangerously. It continued in the same manner through West Kelowna and across the W.R. Bennett Bridge.
“Given the danger to the public, RCMP officers forcibly stopped the vehicle on KLO Road near Lowe Street. The male driver was taken into custody at that time,” said Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy.
The extent of the damage caused by the erratic driver is still being investigated and police are asking all those affected to come forward.
Some of the vehicles that were struck were parked in downtown Kelowna, RCMP said.
