ATV Rollover Near Fort St. John

Monday, June 29, 2015 @ 9:13 AM

Fort St. John, B.C. – There’s been another ATV rollover in northern, B.C.

The latest happened Saturday night on Doig Road just north of Fort St. John.

Mounties say the individual was injured but are releasing no further details at this time.

The crash comes just four days after a 36 year old man was killed when the ATV he was driving went out of control, rolled and ended up in nearby trees just outside of Tumbler Ridge.


People are hurt doing a huge variety of different activities every day. Are ATV related injuries a special news item?

Anything they want to ban first becomes and special news item for years so it can seem to be justified law to bring in.

since when is an ATV rollover news? I smell a hidden agenda with the media.

I rolled mine over last weekend. How come I never made the news?

No idea why these mishaps make the news… its not an accident.. usually inexperienced, alcohol, speed…etc a factor. maybe the media is trying to warn us some how…. because who knew all these factors inhibit driving ability ;)

I fell off my bicycle.

Darn it, just tripped and stubbed my toe! New regulations regarding permits and licences for “walking” are now being considered.

Full story to follow!

Because it is a vehicle accident on a public road and someone was hurt, the RCMP usually issue a press release. 250 News summarizes the release as a news item to help fill in the days content, easy peasy.

@eye spy . I’d add that most of us apreciate your work at keeping us all well informed . Thank you Greg . Keep on keepin on .

I fell of a 32 ft ladder, it did not make the news… Of course I was on the first rung.

Has anyone read the old newspapers of when horseless carriages plied the roads uncontrolled. Was there a hidden agenda to reduce crashes because of roads without rules and drivers without training?

All this is is awareness raising that this things can be dangerous because they are motorized, can go faster than motorized bicycles and electric motorcycles which can also be driven without licenses.

Driving an ATV on paved roads is virtually an uncontrolled experience since the low pressure balloon tires are not designed for that.

If you want to read professional news reporting read Castanet out of Kelowna’s report on “two dead in accident”.
Far more detail and likely more accurate. Maybe the police will talk to those reporters. Maybe Craig Douglas would be out of a job if they gave information to the news reporters. lol.

Craig Douglas’s teeth are having a middle school dance, where the boys stand on one side of the room, and the girls stand on the other.
