Trees, fences, poles fall victim to in-town crashes

Although it appeared to be a quiet holiday season in the Hope area, a drive down our streets tells a different story.

Although it appeared to be a quiet holiday season in the Hope area, a drive down our streets tells a different story. No information was available from police, however, three vehicle crashes caused plenty of property damage.

Early Friday morning, December 24, police were called out to Fifth avenue, near the high school, after a car slammed into a telephone pole. A witness reported seeing someone staggering away from the vehicle, get into another car, and drive away from the crash scene.

On New Years day, signs of a second crash could be seen at the Telte-Yet Campground, where it appears a vehicle came off Coquihalla street, crossed four lanes of the TransCanada highway, at a high rate of speed, and landed wrapped up in a chain link fence. A third crash was reported just north of the Hope-Fraser bridge, where a southbound vehicle missed the curve at Landstrom road and crashed into a tree.
