Sunday’s fatal collision on Carson Drive that claimed the life of Rayel MacDonald, 20, and critically injured Alysha Mullett, 20, when they were struck by a medium sized pickup truck will be discussed during a general information session being held at Williams Lake Secondary School on Wednesday at 7 p.m.
Mick Howell, RCMP Victim Services program manager, says he, along with members of the RCMP and school counsellors, will be there to facilitate.
“Following the information session, those who have been seriously impacted and would like to break out into a smaller group, primarily those who were on scene or witnesses, will have a debriefing session,” Howell says.
RCMP have reported there were 25 to 30 witnesses present at the time of the incident, so the aim is to reach out and do some critical instance stress debriefing.
As of Wednesday morning, Victim Services had only met with a few of people who were close to the scene, Howell explains. They’ve also met with the nursing class at Thompson Rivers University, because both MacDonald and Mullett were students in the program.
“Our hope is to reach out to as many people as possible,” Howell says.
