Golden RCMP Say That U-Turn Caused Sunday Accident

Golden RCMP are reminding motorists of the dangers of U-turns, following a Sunday accident on Highway One.

Police say that a driver travelling near Field was rear-ended after braking suddenly to make a U-turn advised by their GPS.

RCMP say that no one was injured in the accident, but that both vehicles were badly damaged.

An RCMP release notes that there are a number of factors in the B.C Motor Vehicle Act that prohibit U-turns.

There's been no mention as to whether or not the offending driver was fined for that accident.
