KAMLOOPS — A preliminary inquiry will be held into a fatal car surfing incident in Vernon.

The 41 year old suspect is accused of dangerous driving causing death, criminal negligence causing death, and failing to stop at an accident causing death.

A preliminary inquiry to review evidence in the case is set for Sept. 17 in Vernon provincial court.
