Many collisions, no injuries last week

IMPAIRED

DRIVING

Checkstops continue in Stettler and surrounding area. Drink responsibly and always plan a safe ride home. In the past week three impaired driving complaints were made by concerned motorists. In each case, although criminal charges were not laid, two of the drivers were ticketed for traffic violations.

COLLISIONS

Twenty-one collisions were reported to the detachment in the last seven days. None involved injury to drivers or passengers. On Dec. 10 at 3:25 p.m., a vehicle traveling along Stewartwyn Road lost control and entered the ditch where it struck a power pole. The lines dropped to the ground and the occupant remained in the vehicle until ATCO and Stettler Regional Fire Rescue deemed it was safe to exit.

CHARGED

Of the 71 investigations this week, only 13 involved criminal allegations including four assaults. On Dec. 12 at 4 p.m., police began an assault investigation along 59 Street in Stettler. As a result, a 35-year-old male from Drumheller was compelled to appear before Provincial Court in Stettler on Jan. 27 to enter a plea to a charge of assault.
