Lytton RCMP report

A traffic fatality, an assaut, an act of vandalism, and more.

By Sgt. Curtis Davis

Lytton RCMP responded to 85 calls for service from Nov. 15 to Dec. 20, including 32 traffic-related complaints.

Assault witnessed

On Nov. 29, a visitor to Lytton witnessed an assault taking place at Main Street and Fifth Street. The male suspect was seen dragging a woman by her hair behind a building and then punching her. Police were on scene almost immediately, and the intoxicated man was arrested and transported to cells in Lillooet. He was later released with a court date in the New Year.

Tragic collision

On Nov. 30, a tragic collision occurred at the junction of Main Street and the Trans-Canada Highway, where a small sedan was struck by a full-size pickup. While the driver of the pick-up was uninjured, the driver of the car was not responsive. After being extricated from the car, the driver was flown to Royal Inland Hospital, but later passed away as a result of her injuries. Traffic Services from Kamloops and a Traffic Reconstructionist are investigating the crash.

Know the rules at the ferry

On Dec. 13 we were advised of a dispute at the reaction ferry regarding over-size and over-length. Recently, Transport Canada and others attended to provide clear direction to users and operators. DriveBC has clear information: the ferry capacity is nine tonnes and maximum length is twelve metres.

Tractor-trailer vandalized

On Dec. 18, we attended to a tractor-trailer parked near the Skuppah Band on the Trans-Canada Highway. The wood chip hauler had 12 of its tires destroyed by somebody using a drill to cut through the sidewalls of the tires. This occurred between Dec. 10 and 15. If you have any information on this, please call the Lytton RCMP at (250) 455-2225 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

The snow is falling and families are travelling to spend time with one another. Please be aware of changing road and weather conditions.

We are looking forward to 2019.
