Oliver RCMP are hoping the public can identify a man in an alleged road-rage incident on Tucelnuit Drive recently. 

Police say a driver was travelling south into Oliver on Highway 97 near the Vaseux Lake rest area on Feb. 7 at 6 p.m. when a dark pickup truck started tail-gating them.

Once they drove onto Tucelnuit Drive they pulled over to the side of the road to allow the truck to pass. The driver of the truck also stopped, got out of their vehicle and approached the other driver.

“The driver of the truck began to yell, and subsequently kicked the victim’s vehicle before getting back into their own vehicle and continuing south on Tucelnuit Drive,” said Cst. James Grandy. 

The suspect is described as: Caucasian, male, mid 40s, short, stocky build, with dark coloured hair and facial hair, with a “smoker’s” voice. 

If anyone has information on this occurrence, they are encouraged to contact the Oliver RCMP at 250-498-3422, or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
