PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – Three residents from Chetwynd and Moberly Lake have been charged after a collision with an Ambulance earlier this week in Prince George.
On Wednesday, October 28, 2020, the Prince George RCMP received a report of a three-vehicle collision on Highway 97 just north of the Simon Fraser Bridge in the City of Prince George.
Front line officers and other emergency services attended the scene and located two pick-up trucks and an ambulance involved in the collision.
Three occupants of one of the vehicles fled on foot but were arrested with a Police Dog Service team’s assistance a short time later.
The initial investigation has led officers to believe that a stolen pick-up truck was driven through a ditch onto Highway 97, striking the median barricade and then colliding with a southbound ambulance, which then collided with another truck towing a trailer.
The ambulance was transporting two patients at the time of the collision. Alcohol and speed are believed to be factors in the collision.
The B.C. Prosecution Service has charged 34-year-old Jocelyn Rae Wood of Chetwynd, B.C. with the following Criminal Code charges:
The B.C. Prosecution Service has also charged 31-year-old Brittany Ann Bisenberger of Chetwynd and 26-year-old Dallas Raymond Garbitt of Moberly Lake, B.C., with the following Criminal Code offence:
