Police are considering drunk driving charges after a dramatic string of accidents on the Pattullo Bridge this week.

On Thursday at about 6 p.m., a Surrey woman was heading north on the bridge into New Westminster when she veered into the centre pylon dividers and collided with up to 30 vehicles heading south.

No one was hurt in the accident.

Members of the New Westminster Police Department arrested the driver for impaired driving.

She was subsequently released with an administrative driving prohibition

The impaired driving investigation is on-going with the possibility of charges being forwarded to Crown Counsel.
