Prince George, B.C.- One person has been sent to hospital with  undetermined injuries following a crash on  Giscome Road  this afternoon.

The collision happened  around 5 pm near  Evasko Road involving a  Jeep and  pick up truck..

Factors contributing to the crash have yet to be  determined.


Looks like some mighty fine drivin’ right there….

    You don’t have a clue what happened.. Maybe it was a medical issue, maybe mechanical etc..

    But then again all your posts have shown ignorance and or extreme lack of compassion.

    I hope anyone hurt has a full recovery.

      You’re right. It’s always someone or something else’ fault.

      P Val, regarding your comment that all of Peter North’s posts have show ignorance and or extreme lack of compassion, are you sure?

      All his posts? All of them? Every single one of them? Every single post that he has ever posted? Really?

      Every single one? Wow, I find that really hard to believe!

      While I agree that it could have been a medical issue, or maybe a mechanical one, it could have been someone texting or on their cell, someone perhaps freaking out over dropping a cigarette on their lap, someone losing control because of a dog on their lap, someone speeding, someone sightseeing instead of paying attention to the road or any of a number of other causes!

      If it was medical or mechanical issue, I hope the driver is ok! If it was any other reason, I still hope that the driver is ok and I hope that he or she learned a lesson!

      P Val, I also hope that you don’t consider my comment to be showing ignorance or an extreme lack of compassion!

      All of my posts P Val? Even the one regarding the killer of the little girl and her Mom in Calgary where I said I only had two words for her killer, “General population”? If that shows extreme lack of compassion for the killer so be it, I stand by my words. Regarding this article, I am willing to go out on a limb and say that less than 3-4% of vehicle collisions are caused by medical conditions and or mechanical issues. The vast majority of collisions are caused by excessive speed, following too close, inattention, distracted driving, inexperience, overconfidence, aggressive drivers, fatigue, alcohol, just to name a few as I am sure there are a myriad of other reasons.

    Actually it was.

    The Jeep was driving extremely erratically and the truck driver had to hit the ditch to avoid the Jeep.

    Part of defensive driving is to keep an eye out for an escape route if an unexpected condition occurs.

    The ditches are deep but the utility poles are far enough away. The driveways can be dangerous if the truck was going fast.

      Bang on gopg2015. A lot of collisions could be avoided if people would look further ahead than the hood of their vehicle.

    Here are a few reasons why even the erratic driver of the Jeep may not have been at fault. We have to remember whenever a Jeep is involved in a crash, do not rule out mechanical problems.

    Chrysler is recalling 10,700 2014 Dodge Durango, Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT vehicles to fix a problem with continued unintended acceleration linked to the cruise-control systems

    FCA US is recalling an estimated 228,181 2014-’15 Jeep Cherokee SUVs worldwide after a small number of inadvertent airbag deployments involving drivers who executed extreme maneuvers

    Chrysler is recalling approximately 1.4 million vehicles, including the 2014-2015 Jeep Cherokee over fears of remote hacking of the vehicle

    Chrysler is recalling an estimated 184,186 2014 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs globally because the steering software may disable the stability control

    Chrysler is recalling an estimated 867,795 2011-’14 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs to fix a problem that could limit the braking ability of the vehicles

    Chrysler is recalling the 2008 Jeep Liberty SUVs due to a driveshaft defect

    Chrysler is recalling an estimated 180,131 2012-’13 Jeep Wranglers because the power steering line may contact and wear a hole in the transmission oil cooler line, resulting in a loss of transmission fluid.

    And that is not even the full current list.

    If you see a jeep in front of you or coming at you, be extra careful and be prepared to take preventative action.


      Does Canada have a Lemon Law similar to the one they have in the States? Really, after more than a century of making vehicles how does Chrysler manage to turn out such troublesome chariots?

    BTW, where is the Jeep?

The brakes work, check the skid marks.

The Jeep? Look in the ditch.

Looks to me like those skid marks were from sliding sideways, then off the road and into the ditch.
