Nelson RCMP is looking for a driver who may have forced a motor home over a bank in Blewett Sunday.

At about 1:48 p.m., police attended a collision on Blewett Road where a large white Ford motor home rolled down the embankment near Carlson Road. It was travelling eastbound.

“Apparently, a west bound vehicle was on or over the centre line and possibly contributed to the motor home going over the edge from the soft shoulder,” said Cpl. Michael Stefani in a press release.

RCMP would like anyone witnessing the accident to come forward with information. The other driver may also not know they caused a collision by going over the centre line and is asked to come forward.

Information can be relayed to the Cst. Van Horne at the Nelson RCMP or via Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
