John Crawford

Terrace RCMP have released information about a series of collisions in downtown Terrace yesterday afternoon that damaged three vehicles and a tree --  and sent two people to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Constable Crystal Evelyn says that, at around 3:10 yesterday, police received multiple reports of a vehicle crash at the corner of Lakelse Avenue and Kalum Street. 

Officers arrived to find a Pontiac laying on its roof on the sidewalk, near the spot where the old Northcoast Anglers Fishing Shop used to be.

The driver of the Suzuki was ticketed for driving without due care.
