The Elk Valley RCMP are investigating a motor vehicle collision that sent one female to the Elk Valley Hospital in Fernie over the weekend.  The accident occurred on Highway 3 near Hosmer approximately 16 kilometres north of Fernie early in the morning of Sunday, January 27.

A male driver has been arrested and police believe that drugs and alcohol played a factor in this incident.

“As the investigation is still on going, we are unable to provide any further details at this time," said Sgt. Will Thien.

Police are looking for witnesses to come forward with any information on this case. Contact the Elk Valley RCMP at 250-425-6233.
