A drunk driver’s licence was suspended and car impounded after the driver falsely claimed a hit-and-run on Highway 99.
On November 20, Squamish RCMP received a report of a hit-and-run collision near Porteau Cove on Highway 99.
Police attended and noted that the damage was inconsistent with the driver’s report.
Evidence on the scene indicated the collision had happened with the road barrier, and not with another vehicle.
A failed breathalyzer test later revealed the driver was driving under the influence.
The driver was issued a 90 day license suspension and the vehicle was impounded for 30 days.
