A Sylvan Lake woman has been charged following an impaired driving incident that resulted in a number of near-collisions in Red Deer last week.

Tamara Lynn Blair, 25, was arrested after RCMP in Red Deer observed a vehicle being driven in “an erratic manner” in the early hours of Oct. 16.

A black SUV was seen on 51 Ave. in Red Deer driving northbound on a southbound one-way street. When police attempted to pull the vehicle over, it sped up and continued at a high speed, narrowly missing a number of oncoming vehicles.

With the public’s safety in mind, police chose not to pursue the vehicle, and instead tracked it at a distance.

After entering the Glendale neighbourhood, it rolled when it struck a parked flatbed trailer.

Neither of its occupants — a female driver and a male passenger — were injured.

Blair has been charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, impaired operation of a motor vehicle, impaired care or control of motor vehicle over .08, operate motor vehicle while disqualified and fail to stop/evade peace officer.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident is asked to contact Const. Ryan Kinney of the Red Deer RCMP detachment at 403-406-2300, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
