Prince George, B.C. – One man is dead following a head-on collision on Chief Lake Road yesterday afternoon. 

Prince George RCMP Corporal Craig Douglass says it happened at around 3:30 p.m. near Aquarius road, northwest of the city.

He says the woman in the other vehicle was taken to hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The crash closed Chief Lake Road for three hours as investigators combed the scene.

Witnesses are asked to call police.


0330 hrs? 3:30 AM , PM ?

    Sorry for the confusion but as the first line indicates, it happened yesterday afternoon…3:30 p.m.

Good point! Canada already switched from the old Fahrenheit temperature scale to the Celsius one, from Imperial gallons to liters – so we could lay to rest the old 12 hour am/pm thing and move to the more common 24 hour (knows as military time) system! It makes for less errors and confusion!

    “happened at around 3:30 p.m.” doesn’t seem to confusing to me.

It is quite obvious that it happened in the afternoon in broad daylight! At 3:30 at night it is very dark!

the picture states 7:47AM. makes a difference. 3 in the morning , 3 in the afternoon. makes a difference to understand the story.

    Pictures usually have captions below them – the Tuesday September 6th, 2016 @ 7:47 AM refers to the time the article was posted. Accident happened “yesterday afternoon” as explained in the article or Monday at 3:30PM

    It was preceded on Monday at 5:24PM by the article (still on the first page) “Serious Crash on Chief Lake Road”

First sentence says collision occurred in the afternoon.. 7:47 am is when the story was posted or last updated…

    right….yesterday afternoon

For those people riding their bikes down this road with no shoulders…really look at this picture and ask yourself.. is it worth it.

    With all the crashes lately is any mode of transportation safe?

      Some are safer than others. Car vs bike is not a good scenario for the bike.

    That shoulder is about 3 ft, and I’ve ridden on it lots. But, I ride a hybrid bike with treaded tires, and I use a mirror, so I can go onto the gravel if it looks like it’s going to be close. That said, I have had few problems riding on Chief Lake. Vehicles are mostly courteous and there is good sight lines so if you’re visible, you’re relatively safe.

    Almost all the problems are once you get into town, even on a bike lane – and no, I’m not one of those guys that rides on the white line.

    Lots of people dying on our roads lately. Very sad, but not unexpected I’m afraid. We’ve all come to look at the motor vehicle act as a book of suggestions that we can ignore because of our superior driving skill – until…

Shame, shame, shame.

Really the story is about a person dying on the road, not quibbling about time and or about the reporting. Show some respect.


Condolences to the family and to the driver who will live with this daily
