FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Mounties say that alcohol is believed to have been a contributing factor in a crash on the Alaska Highway in Fort St. John on Sunday afternoon.

Sgt. Dave Tyreman with the Fort St. John RCMP said that the collision occurred just before 2:15 on Sunday afternoon. A Chevrolet Cobalt sedan and a Ford flat deck pickup truck collided on the Alaska Highway at 107th St.

The road was closed for several hours while police investigated. BC Ambulance Service did attend, but there’s no word on whether any of the vehicle’s occupants sustained injuries.

Sgt. Tyreman said that the driver of the flat deck truck was detained for impaired driving, though no charges have been laid. He added that police are continuing their investigation, and more details should be released once details are known.
