Two collisions last Friday afternoon

Two trucks collided at the intersection of Kenny Street and Hwy 16 Friday afternoon.

Around 1:40 p.m., Nov. 1 Terrace RCMP received a report of a collision involving two trucks at the intersection. A black Chevy truck was heading eastbound on Hwy 16 when it struck a northbound blue Ford truck. Both vehicles were towed from the scene.

A ticket was issued for failure to stop at a red light.

Around the same time, police attended a two-vehicle crash on the south side of the Sande Overpass and Keith Avenue. According to the investigation, a grey car was turning left onto the overpass from Keith Avenue when it struck a grey vehicle going straight through. Both vehicles were only occupied by a driver and both drivers appeared uninjured.

Both vehicles were towed. A ticket was issued for failure to yield to a vehicle in an intersection.

Impaired driving

A man has lost his license following a vehicle stop on Sparks Street Friday night.

Around 10:30 p.m., Nov. 1, 2019, police were conducting patrols when they observed a blue truck on Park Avenue registered to an N driver, but without the N displayed.

After stopping the vehicle and speaking to its driver, police conducted a roadside breath test, which the driver failed to perform.

A 90-day driving prohibition and 30-day vehicle impound was issued for refusing to provide a breath sample, which carries the same penalty as providing one exceeding .08, as well as violation tickets for failing to display the N and driving contrary to restriction.

There was another report of a vehicle running a red light and swerving all over the road led to a vehicle impound, violation tickets, and an arrest.

On Sunday Nov. 3, around 8:20 p.m., Terrace RCMP received a report of a possible impaired driver on the 4700 block of Lakelse Avenue. Police attended, located the vehicle and performed roadside breath tests which registered readings of ‘Fail’.

A man was issued a Notice of Driving Prohibition, 30-day vehicle impound, and a violation ticket for no driver’s license. He was also arrested for breaching his no-consume conditions and released with a court date.
