Prince George, B.C. –  City of Prince George is already making repairs to the Rolling Mix Arena on Patricia Boulevard,  following an early morning incident.

Around 1:00 this morning,  a pick up truck  slammed into the  Patricia Boulevard side of the arena.

“We had a structural engineer  attend the site  this morning” says Rob Whitwham, General Manager of Community Services for the City of Prince George   “He has  concluded there  had been no damage to the structural integrity of the arena,  so we already have contractors on site making repairs.”

The arena is home to the Spruce Kings of the BCHL  and the team is  scheduled to have  an exhibition game this Saturday  evening as they  welcome   the Grande Prairie Storm.

“There will be no impact to the Spruce Kings  plans”  says  Whitwham.

The  driver of the pickup  fled the scene following the   crash.  Police later located a  male  believed to be the  driver.  According to police the suspect gave two breath samples which  were both  two times higher than the legal limit for  alcohol.
