Someone has been loosening vehicle lug nuts

“Who ever is doing this, STOP, before someone is seriously injured or killed.”

  • May. 3, 2012 8:00 a.m.

TWO CASES of loosened lug nuts recently could have had disastrous results, says a Terrace RCMP officer.

No one was injured in either of these incidents, but if either of these vehicles had been traveling at a higher rate of speed the outcome could have been very bad,” says Constable Angela Rabut.

Who ever is doing this, STOP, before someone is seriously injured or killed.”

The first incident took place April 28 when a wheel of a green 1991 Chevrolet Blazer fell off enroute to the carnival in Thornhill.

The driver took the vehicle to a mechanic who informed her that all of the lug nuts on her wheels had been loosened.

The second incident took place April 30 when a vehicle left Boston Pizza at approximately 10:15 PM.

After a short time period the driver and passengers heard rattling and stopped to investigate. They discovered that the lug nuts on the wheels of their vehicle had been loosened.

Rabut said the people in the vehicle indicated a a red muscle car was following them and may be associated to this incident.
