I just think it’s time for VicPD to move towards prefered pronouns.

"The vehicle was still being driven with the damage done below."

 

How is that possible?

Up to 70 cars are piled up on the Trans-Canada Highway near Brooks, while semi-trailers have overturned on other roadways as wind and snow rip across a large swath of the southern and eastern Alberta.

 

RCMP say the westbound lanes of Highway 1 about 200 kilometres east of  Calgary are expected to be closed for several hours.

Officers Investigating After Fernwood Collision Shears Hydro Pole

April 12, 2021 - File: #21-13861

 

Victoria, BC – Patrol officers are investigating after a single-vehicle collision in Fernwood sent one person to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

 

Patrol officers were called to the 1900-block of Fernwood Avenue just before 2 a.m. this morning for a report that a vehicle had struck a hydro pole. When officers arrived, they located the vehicle on its side and the pole supported only by its wires.

 

The driver of the vehicle, who was the sole occupant, was transported to hospital by BC Emergency Health Services paramedics with non-life-threatening injuries. The road was closed while Victoria Fire Department firefighters and BC Hydro worked to make the area safe. Photographs of the scene are below.

 

Officers are still investigating the cause of the collision and whether speed and/or impairment were factors.

 

If you have information about this incident and have not yet spoken to officers, please call the VicPD Report Desk at (250) 995-7654 extension 1. To report what you know anonymously, please call Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
