A woman is in custody after her involvement in a single vehicle collision.

On May 8, at approximately noon, Prince George RCMP and Fire Rescue, along with the B.C. Ambulance Service responded to a call regarding a single vehicle collision. The incident occurred on Chief Lake Road, near Inglewood Road in Prince George.

Upon arriving at the scene, authorities determined that two random individuals had pulled a female adult out of a white Ford F-250 pickup after it caught fire.

According to witnesses, the rescued female stated that there had been five other people inside the vehicle, although she was the only person located.

RCMP then used Azar, the Police Service Dog, to search the area for more passengers. No other people were located and it was later confirmed that the driver was the lone person in the vehicle.

The driver, 23 year old Tamara Emma Davis, a resident of Halfway River First Nation, just north of Fort St. John, was then transported to the University Hospital of Northern B.C. There she received treatment for non-life threatening injuries. Davis was released from hospital and is being held in custody until her court date, scheduled for May 10.

Investigators believe that alcohol was a factor in the collision and she is charged with refusing to provide a breath sample and impaired driving.

If anyone has any information on the collision, please contact the Prince George RCMP at 250-561-3300 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
