Charges Likely in Early Morning Crashes on Foothills
( at right, scene of this morning’s crash on the Foothills Bridge- image 250News)Just before 8 this morning, Prince George RCMP received a report of a three vehicle collision on the Foothills Boulevard Bridge in Prince George.
Police and other emergency services attended the scene and located one occupant in each vehicle. Two were transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police believe a white Chevy pick-up was northbound on the Foothills Bridge when the 31 year old male driver lost control and crossed the center line, colliding with a southbound blue Chevy pick-up being driven by a 43 year old male. A third vehicle, a blue Ford pick-up, being driven southbound by a 28 year old male, was unable to stop and collided with the other two vehicles.
Road conditions were icy at the time of the collision and were a factor. Traffic was restricted to one lane alternating for most of the morning commute to work.
Police would like to remind the driving public to drive to the road conditions. Slow down and give the vehicle in front of you plenty of room to stop should the driver need to.
Motor vehicle charges are likely.
Two other vehicle collisions were reported along Foothills Boulevard this morning.
