At around 9 p.m. that night, Dawson Creek RCMP responded to a report that a large truck had crashed into a house on the corner of 107 Avenue and Ninth Street. Emergency personnel arrived to find an unresponsive male in the cab of the truck. Firefighters freed the man from the truck and he was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening facial injuries.
Police report there were no known injuries to anybody who may have been in the residence, but the damage to the house was substantial and the house has been rendered uninhabitable as a result.
An investigation revealed that the 2007 Kenworth flat deck truck had been stolen from Pouce Coupe, and as a result, Dawson Creek RCMP is now investigating charges of possession of stolen property over $5,000, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, and driving while prohibited, among other charges.
