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.
