Three hurt in two-vehicle crash near UNBC; alcohol suspected to be a factor

Police say alcohol was a factor in a two-vehicle collision on University Way that send three people to hospital December 28.

The crash occurred just before 7 p.m. Monday. When officers arrived they found a two-vehicle collision involving a pickup truck and an SUV near the University of Northern B.C. BC Ambulance Service transported three people to University Hospital of Northern B.C. for injuries sustained during the collision.

The driver of the SUV did not sustain serious injuries. Police transported the 29-year-old man to the detachment and later released him on an appearance notice for court on March 31, 2021, pending charge assessment from the B.C. Prosecution Service. Police believe alcohol was a factor in this incident.
