Man injured in collision charged with impaired and dangerous driving

Advertisement

Police state the man was driving a pickup truck that swerved into the path of an oncoming tractor trailer that was loaded with lumber, near the intersection of Highways 97 and 52 at around 2:30 p.m. The driver of the pickup was taken to hospital in Dawson Creek to be treated for his injuries, but nobody else was injured in the collision.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor, and the driver of the pickup truck will appear in Dawson Creek court on charges of impaired driving and dangerous driving.

The severity of the damage at the scene required the temporary closure of Highway 97, but the highway was reopened to traffic in both directions late last night.
