People reported hearing sirens on Saturday (July 6) and Grand Forks RCMP Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison said that it could be due to an accident just east of Grand Forks.

“At 5:51 p.m., we received a complaint of a single-vehicle collision near the intersection of 68th Avenue and Highway 3. A grey (1995) Toyota pickup truck lost control when its tire blew out. It struck a concrete barrier and took out the Stop sign,” he said, adding that upon investigation, police noticed the blown tire was completely bald and as a result, a charge was laid for a defective motor vehicle.

First responders attended and determined the driver, a 53-year-old from Grand Forks, had no injuries whatsoever.
