A young man from Vauxhall is facing charges in relation to multiple collisions in Taber this weekend.

Taber Police say officers attempted to stop a pickup truck for multiple driving offences early Saturday morning (Aug. 15) when it tried to flee down a nearby alley.

The driver of the pickup hit a parked trailer and an ATV before trying to flee down another alley where it hit a power pole and finally came to a stop.

The lone man inside was arrested and charged with impaired driving, flight from police and failing to remain at the scene of an accident.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
