RCMP seek witness to single motor vehicle incident

The RCMP are looking for witnesses to a single motor vehicle incident on Highway 97 near Subway Friday morning in Williams Lake.

On May 2, the owner and driver of a 2007 Ford Mustang called the RCMP at 3:07 a.m. saying he had swerved to avoid a deer in the road and crashed.

He swerved right to avoid the deer, collided with a street light across the road, the RCMP said.

When the police arrived the front of the car was damaged, the air bags were deployed, and the street light was knocked of its base and lying in the ditch.

City crews were called out because there were live wires.

"The driver was the lone occupant of the vehicle," the RCMP said, adding no drugs or alcohol are suspected as contributing factors.

Friday's call was one of approximately 80 calls for service during the weekend, which consisted mostly of assaults, disturbances, traffic complaints and liquor-related incidents.
