Just before noon Friday, members of the Prince George RCMP’s Street Crew Unit attempted to execute a traffic stop with a vehicle near the corner of Victoria Street and 15th Avenue (Patricia Blvd). The vehicle was associated to a person with outstanding arrest warrants.
The driver of the vehicle fled north down Victoria Street. In the interest of public safety, officers did not pursue. Moments later, RCMP began receiving reports of a two vehicle collision at the intersection of Eighth Avenue and Vancouver Street. Frontline officers attended and found the suspect vehicle had collided with another vehicle. The male driver fled on foot and then into another vehicle being driven by another man.
That vehicle was located near the intersection of Third Avenue and Victoria Street. The vehicle was stopped and the two occupants, aged 42 and 31, were taken into custody.
The lone occupant of the vehicle that was struck by the suspect vehicle, was transported to hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
This investigation is in its beginning stages.
