Trail of damage leads Mounties to Fairview waterfront and crashed vehicle

A late Sunday evening trail of damaged vehicles ended at the Fairview Docks waterfront, when members of the Prince Rupert RCMP responded to a dangerous driving call.

The ride through the city which took place around 11:30 in the evening included travel along Second Avenue West and left damaged vehicles along the way.

It ended at the dock between the Fairview Floats and the Smit Marine dock with a truck having crashed through a barrier and lodged on the the empty dock space along the access road.

A trail of damage was found from the downtown
area through to Fairview as an alleged impaired driver
left a mark through the west side of the city Sunday night

Social media has a number of photos of the incident which came to a conclusion with a 20 year old male in custody and facing recommended charges of impaired driving, driving over the legal limit of .08 and failure to comply with an undertaking.

Fortunately other than the damage to vehicles, on one was injured during the course of Sunday's road journey to the Fairview area.
