One driver’s mistake caused another to make a guess, causing them both to land in the Chase RCMP detachment.
At approximately 3:10 pm on July 29, RCMP officers responded to a driving complaint on Highway 1 near Chase. The complainant reported being cut off by a pickup truck and suspected that the truck driver was injured.
Tracked RCMP Sergeant. Barry Kennedy said police searched for the pickup but could not find it.
About 15 minutes later, police received a 911 call from a frightened woman. A woman was traveling in a pickup truck, she said, followed by a gray minivan behind her and her young daughter.
“They were almost home when they realized the minivan was still chasing her,” Kennedy said. “She continued her drive so she didn’t know where the other drivers lived. They ended up on a dirt road in the country. When she tried to turn back, a minivan blocked the road. ”
Kennedy said the woman managed to escape and called 911. A gray minivan followed, and soon both vehicles pulled up in her RCMP station parking lot.
Police spoke with both drivers and learned that the minivan driver was the original complainant.
“He was chasing a pickup truck because he thought the driver was disabled,” Kennedy said. It didn’t float.”
Kennedy said the pickup driver was not at fault and “just made a common driving mistake.”
“The minivan driver had no ill intentions, but the mother and daughter were understandably shaken by the experience,” Kennedy said.
