The Ponoka Integrated Traffic Unit attended to the scene of a single vehicle collision on Highway 2 on April 13.
At approximately 11:30 a.m. a white van was seen driving southbound across the centre median past the northbound lane and then launched 300 metres into a field off of Highway 2.
It is believed that the driver, a 43-year-old man from Red Deer, may have suffered a medical emergency and had blacked out while driving. EMS attended the scene and he was transported to the Ponoka Hospital and Care Centre.
Officers provided the man with a 24-hour driving suspension to ensure he did not operate a MV until checked by medical staff.
Stolen vehicle located
Police located an abandoned Dodge pickup April 13 with an Allen wrench in the ignition.
Upon investigating the incident it was determined the truck was stolen out of Sylvan Lake. The vehicle also had a torn apart interior, say police. There are no witnesses.
Erratic driver with arrest warrant
Members of the Ponoka Integrated Traffic Unit responded to an erratic driving complaint April 14.
It was reported that the driver of the vehicle was tailgating a motorist on Highway 2 near Lacombe. They passed the complainant and then slammed on the brakes in front of the vehicle, say police.
Once located by the officers, it was determined that the 52-year-old Edmonton woman driver had a suspended licence and had a warrant for her arrest.
She was charged with careless driving and driving while unauthorized. A 74 year-old male passenger from Edmonton was charged with permitting a person with suspended or disqualified license to drive a motor vehicle.
