Vehicle with stolen Chetwynd licence plate involved in Williams Lake fatal rollover

A 21 year old passenger was also seriously injured in the rollover and is currently in serious condition, while a third passenger was arrested without incident.  

The 21 year old driver and another passenger fled the scene on foot and stole another vehicle from a nearby residence. The Alberta residents with outstanding warrants were both apprehended and arrested after a brief police pursuit. 

A search of the original stolen truck turned up a firearm, a knife and brass knuckles, and subsequent investigation found the group of males is also responsible for other crimes in Williams Lake and surrounding areas.

It is believed that alcohol and excessive speed were factors in this accident.
