RCMP Staff Sgt. Damon Werrell notes charges may be forthcoming from a highway closure on Jan. 16 was due to a motor vehicle crash involving five youth under 18. All four survived the single vehicle rollover which occurred around 3 am.
One of the youth, an 11-year old male, was airlifted to Vancouver with significant injuries. He was ejected from the vehicle, when it crashed at 21st Street near Alaska Ave.
Werrell says the matter is still under investigation.
“Speed and driver inexperience are believed to be contributing factors,” notes Werrell, adding multiple Motor Vehicle Act offences are being investigated, including no seatbelts, and driving contrary to restrictions.
