Truck hits car, no injuries to pregnant woman
On Feb. 28 at 2:13 p.m., a 33-year-old male from Castlegar was driving a Chambers truck and hit a 2004 Taurus that was turning left off the highway near Christina Lake.
The truck was unable to stop in time and struck the left rear corner of the vehicle, causing over $1,000 in damages to the car.
No one was injured, but the 20-year-old female driver of the car from Christina Lake was taken to the hospital because she is nine months pregnant. “They wanted to make sure everything was OK, and thankfully it was,” said Grand Forks RCMP’s Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison.
On Saturday, March 3 at 8:14 p.m., there were two calls of a disturbance from residents.
RCMP attended the scene and located a 20-year-old individual who has been living in Grand Forks but is from Trail.
“They arrested him for being drunk in a public place and causing a disturbance,” explained Harrison. “He was subsequently charged with being drunk in a public place and we (placed him in a cell) for the evening to sleep it off and to stop him from bothering people.”
