No license, no truck
Jan. 9 at 1:50 pm Traffic Services stopped a 1996 GMC Sierra on Hwy 97 near the Bonaparte Bend Winery after receiving information that the 46 year old driver was driving without a license. The resident of the Bonaparte Reserve did not have a valid Drivers License and was issued a ticket for driving without a valid license. He was served with a driving prohibition and his vehicle was towed.
An abrupt stop
Jan. 11 at 6 pm police attended a single motor vehicle accident in Thompson River Estates after a 61 year old Surrey man lost control of his 2001 Ford Econoline van on slippery roads and slid through an intersection and hit a power pole, snapping the pole. BC Hydro worked for six hours to secure the pole. The driver was not injured and the van had minimal damage. The driver was lucky to have stopped his momentum with the pole, as there was a 100-foot embankment on the other side of it.
