Driver charged after weekend rollover at 100 and 100

No one was injured in a two-car crash at 100 and 100 Sunday morning, Fort St. John RCMP say.

Sgt. Steve Perret says a white pickup truck was travelling east on 100 Avenue around 8 a.m. when a southbound black Dodge pickup blew a red light at 100 Street and smashed into the vehicle.

The crash sent the black Dodge onto its side. No one was seriously injured, though one driver was treated for minor abrasions, said Perret.

The 33-year-old man driving the black Dodge is facing a number of charges, including disobeying a red light and driving an uninsured vehicle, Perret said.

Alcohol and drugs are not believed to be a factor at this time.

Perret said drivers need to be aware of their surroundings when behind the wheel.

“I drive around Fort St. John, people disobeying traffic control devices is an issue,” he said.

“You never know when there’s a vehicle coming the other way. Even on a quiet Sunday morning, you may run a red light and not be the only other vehicle on the road.”
