A Penticton RCMP Officer has been charged in connection with a traffic accident last year that left a five-year-old boy dead.
Constable Ace Jimmy Stewart has been charged with driving without due care and attention.
Stewart was off duty on September 15 last year, when the vehicle he was driving is alleged to have struck and killed five-year-old James McIntosh.
The accident happened at the intersection of Highway 97 and Green Mountain Road in Penticton last September.
The boy was riding his bike across the intersection with his father and older brother when he was struck.
The Independent Investigation office determined the officer may have committed an offence and submitted a report to crown counsel.
