Bizarre Incident Leads to Police Search

On Wednesday morning RNC Patrol Services in Corner Brook attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a pick- up truck in the Watson’s Pond/TCH area after the officer observed the pickup driving erratically and aggressively and increasing its speed.

The officer was unable to apprehend the pick-up and was informed by some mountain bikers that were in the area at the time, that they were almost struck by the same pick-up which they described as “came flying off the road and went onto the groomed ski-doo trail”.

Afterwards a search was conducted for the vehicle on the groom trail in the area of Marble Mountain.

The vehicle was located several kilometers in on the trail.

The driver of the pick-up was not located at this time but through further investigation, it was learnt that the driver was safe.

This matter is ongoing with possible charges forthcoming.
