On July 8 at 7:46 p.m., RCMP received a report of a single motor vehicle accident 14 kilometres up North Fork and Granby Road area.

“The vehicle was found by police in the east ditch facing east with the front tires in the ditch,” said Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison of the Grand Forks RCMP. “The driver’s side front wheel was badly damaged. It appears the driver was driving north on Granby, missed the corner and went through a barbed wire fence. The driver then proceeded to take out a fence pole while driving through the field.”

In attempting to get out of the field, the driver drove through another fence pole and by so doing damaged the wheel and lost control, ending up in the ditch hood first, said Harrison.

“We did track down who the owner of the vehicle is,” said Harrison. “We’re looking at laying charges of failing to remain at the scene of an accident, driving with no insurance, driving without due care and attention, and having a wrong number plate on the vehicle.”
