Dangerous pass leads to charge

Wetaskiwin man nearly killed after attempt to pass in the fog

Ponoka RCMP attended to a two-vehicle collision on Highway 53 East of Ponoka on March 26, involving a Chevrolet Silverado and a semi-trailer.

The truck went to pass the westbound semi in foggy weather and a head on collision was avoided when the semi swerved, sending the Chevrolet into the south ditch, police stated.

The truck wound up with extensive damage to the passenger side.

No injuries were reported and police have charged a 19 year-old Wetaskiwin man with making an unsafe lane change.

RCMP are also investigating a break in at the Ponoka Chrysler, where unknown suspects stole some keys on March 31.

The suspects left with a 2018 dark blue Jeep Compass and a 2017 white Dodge Ram, leaving a stolen Mazda.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Ponoka RCMP at 403-783-4472.
