Driver and passenger walk away from crash

Terrace RCMP say it's 'unbelievable' neither was hurt worse or killed

Two people walked away with only minor injuries from a motor vehicle crash that occurred in the middle of the day Sept. 21, reported Terrace RCMP.

The driver was, self admittedly, drunk, said police.

Officers were called to the crash  shortly after 3 p.m. in the 2600 block of Eby St. after a green 2003 Chevrolet Malibu lost control at high speeds, smashed into a parked truck, spun out of control, and came to rest in the driveway of a residence, said police.

The 20-year-old passenger and 20-year-old driver both sustained only minor injuries.

“Indicators suggest a speed in excess of 100 km/hr. At that time of day and on that road, it is unbelievable that nobody was seriously hurt or killed,” says Const. Darren Warn, general duty Terrace RCMP.

Charges are being forwarded to Crown Counsel upon completion of the investigation.
