Woman reported to be driving erratically on the Coquihalla crashes vehicle into a home in Kamloops.

Kamloops RCMP Corporal Jodi Shelkie says a 59-year-old Prince George woman was taken to hospital with head injuries sustained after she allegedly drove her vehicle into a residence in the Pineview neighbourhood.

"Last night at around 10pm we started to receive numerous complaints of an erratic driver travelling northbound on the Coquihalla. As our officers were driving to the location, more reports came in that the vehicle had exited the highway near Copperhead Dr at a high rate of speed and had then entered the Pineview area. The vehicle travelled down Foxtail Dr, striking three parked vehicles, before colliding with a residence."

Impaired driving is suspected to have been a factor in the crashes and Shelkie confirms charges are likely.
