KAMLOOPS — Police have resumed their investigation of last week's crash at Eighth Avenue and Columbia Street that left two people injured.

The crash involved a stolen vehicle that RCMP had been tracking earlier in the day.

Because of that fact, the Independent Investigations Office initially took control of the investigation.

Corporal Jodi Shelkie says the IIO found no fault in the RCMP.

"They have released jurisdiction, saying that no action or inaction by the police were involved in that collision," said Shelkie.

A 42 year old man and a 33 year old woman were arrested in Vernon last weekend in relation to the crash and stolen vehicle.
