A group of concerned citizens followed an erratic driver into 100 Mile House on Dec. 11 after he had displayed unsafe operation of his vehicle.

During the course of the convoy, police say the Dodge pickup was also involved in a sideswipe collision with another vehicle on Skaday’s Bridge at Horse Lake.

RCMP report receiving calls from drivers witnessing the man driving erratically, and several of them followed the pickup in their vehicles down Horse Lake Road eastbound into town.

When the truck slowed in front of 100 Mile House Junior Secondary, the other drivers boxed it in with their own cars, SUVs and pickups to prevent any further hazardous driving.

Police responded to the location, and quickly found the pickup driver was suffering from a medical condition with seizures.

BC Ambulance Service was called and the man was removed from his vehicle transported to 100 Mile District General Hospital for treatment.

100 Mile House RCMP Sgt. Don McLean says the damages to the vehicles were minor in nature.

Luckily, no one was injured during this event and charges are not being contemplated at this time.

100 Mile RCMP would like to thank the citizens who brought this matter to a successful conclusion.”
