Truck Crashes into Home

On Thursday morning the RCMP in Bay Roberts responded to a single vehicle collision in Spaniards Bay.

A pickup truck was travelling east bound and went through the intersection of New Harbour Road and Route 70 and crashed into a house next to the intersection.

The lone driver of the truck was transported to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries. The house was occupied at the time of the collision but no one inside was injured. Damage to the house and truck were significant.

The truck has been sent for a mechanical inspection.

While first responders were at the scene, a driver breached the perimeter setup by police and drove into the oncoming lane of traffic to avoid the traffic lineup. The driver was ticketed for failing to yield the right away to an emergency vehicle.
