Jaws of life needed

Early last week saw a single vehicle accident on Hwy. 16 West at Giesbrecht Road, when an SUV left the road and became imbedded in a grove of bushes. Rescue crews  had to cut the Ford Suburban open to extract the female occupant who was taken to St. John’s hospital where she was deemed to be in stable condition. The investigation is ongoing.

 

Caught breaking in

Police were called to a break-in in progress last Tuesday at a residence on the Saik’uz reservation. Police found one intoxicated male trying to enter the home. He was found to be in breach of several probation orders and was remanded to await a court date in Prince George.

 

Impaired Driver

Just after 1 p.m. on Wednesday February 8, police were called to a possible impaired person, driving east bound into Vanderhoof.

The driver was located and arrested for impaired driving, and will go before a judge.
