Fight at Husky may have led to accident

Police are looking for witnesses to the fight last Friday morning.

Ashcroft RCMP are looking for witnesses to a fight that occurred at the Cache Creek Husky in the early morning hours of Aug. 29.

At 2:51 am police were called to a single vehicle accident on Nugget Rd. in Cache Creek after a pickup truck struck a fence and then a tree in front of a residence. The truck came to a stop although the engine was still revving. The complainant advised that the interior of the truck was filled with smoke.

Police arrived with BC ambulance and Ashcroft Fire Rescue with the Jaws of Life. The 66 year old Cache Creek driver was unresponsive and taken to Kamloops’ hospital, where staff felt the man may have had a pre-existing medical condition. The truck was towed.

Later that morning police were contacted by a Cache Creek man who advised them that the victim and another man were arguing at the Husky and that there was a physical altercation just before the man had gotten into his truck and had the accident.

Any witnesses to the fight are asked to call RCMP at 453-2216.
