A 24-year-old woman from the Kainai Blood Tribe Reserve near Standoff is facing several criminal and provincial charges following a hit and run with a motorcycle driver on Saturday,
August 6th in Coleman.
The collision took place at around 8:30 a.m. on Hwy 3 in West Coleman, after the front end of the woman’s car collided with the hitch on the back end of the motorcycle, causing the male driver of the bike to lose control and wipe out.
He sustained serious lower body injuries - including a broken femur - and was transported to the Foothills Hospital in Calgary.
The woman remained at the scene only briefly before taking off and leaving the injured man alone.
Crowsnest Pass and Pincher Creek RCMP as well as the Alberta Sheriffs
Department were dispatched to locate the woman.
Numerous motorists called in complaints against the woman, who was driving erratically as she continued east on Hwy 3.
She was eventually stopped by Pincher Creek RCMP just west of Pincher Creek and arrested for impaired driving.
She appeared confused, and officers noticed an open beer can in the passenger seat.
She was taken to the detachment, where she provided two samples of breath, which read 120 and 110 milligrams per cent, well over the legal blood alcohol limit.

The woman has been charged with seven Criminal Code charges and four Provincial stats, including dangerous driving causing bodily harm, impaired operation of a motor vehicle causing injury, failing to remain at the scene of a collision, and driving without a licence.

She was also found to be in breech of pre-existing conditions to abstain from the consumption of alcohol, and has been charged accordingly for breech of probation.
The woman was expected to appear in Pincher Creek provincial court last week, but further information was not available at press time.
The biker, a 61-year-old male from Stirling, Alta, is expected to make a full recovery.
RCMP would like to thank the public and semi truck drivers who assisted in the apprehension of the accused.
