Prince Rupert RCMP issued some background to their investigation on Monday, which is looking into the travels of a lone truck through the downtown area, having struck a building as it was driven up 5th street.
As the vehicle was leaving the scene, it also struck two street signs during the course of its journey before the occupants fled the scene.
Police later located and recovered the abandoned vehicle a short distance away.
One male was taken into custody and has subsequently been released by Police. The RCMP notes that it was fortunate that no one was injured owing to the large volume of foot traffic in the area at the time.
