Crowsnest RCMP arrest youth accused of dangerous driving

Multiple charges are pending against a youth after mounties from B.C. and Alberta worked together to track down a dangerous driver.

Crowsnest Pass RCMP say they received a request for assistance from Elk Valley RCMP just before 9:30 am Monday (June 8).

A vehicle linked to multiple complaints about dangerous driving through manned construction zones was heading toward Alberta.

Mounties in the Crowsnest Pass deployed a tire deflation device and took over the pursuit along Highway 3 for about 10 kilometres before the suspect vehicle hit a guard rail in Coleman.

The youth driver was taken to hospital as a precaution before being released to a parent. Charges are pending.
