Chase RCMP  have been busy this month with more than three accidents, vandalism and Remembrance Day ceremonies.

On Nov. 7, about 7:20 a.m., Chase RCMP responded to a two-vehicle head-on collision on the single- lane, Scotch Creek Bridge on Squilax-Anglemont Road. The impact between the SUV and compact car occurred at a low speed, but one driver was transported to the Chase clinic as a precaution, report police. The wooden bridge deck was wet and slippery at the time.  Alcohol and drugs were not factors in the collision.  No charges are contemplated at this time.

Police crash

A Chase RCMP officer was involved in a single-vehicle collision on Squilax-Anglemont Road in Anglemont on Nov. 9  about 11:45 p.m. The police vehicle left the roadway, striking a camper trailer and a residence.  The vehicle’s airbags deployed, and the officer suffered only minor injuries.  The circumstances of the collision are under investigation by RCMP Central Interior Traffic Services in Kamloops. No information on what caused the vehicle to go off the road was provided. Chase RCMP will not be told of the details until the investigation has been completed, says Chase RCMP Sgt. Gary Heebner.
