Bonnyville police respond to collisions

In the last seven days, Bonnyville RCMP members responded to motor vehicle collisions in both the Town of Bonnyville and in Iron River along Highway 55.
Dispatched to the scene was the RCMP's Emergency Response Team (ERT) from Edmonton, the Police Dog Services, as well as the RCMP Air Services. 

BONNYVILLE – Between March 12 to 14, Bonnyville RCMP responded to two preventable motor collisions within the Town and MD of Bonnyville. 

At 8:20 p.m. on March 12, the RCMP members were dispatched to a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of 46 Street and 50 Avenue. 

Following an investigation, police determined one driver ran a red light and T-boned another vehicle.   

The driver of the offending vehicle, a 35-year-old woman from Bonnyville, was issued a $405 ticket for failing to stop at a red light. 

Just two days later on March 14, officers were dispatched to another two-vehicle collision in front of Iron River School on Highway 55. 

“As one vehicle was stopped in the driving lane waiting to turn left into the school it was rear-ended by another vehicle,” according to RCMP. The collision occurred around 8:30 a.m. 

A 38-year-old man from Saskatoon was issued a $243 ticket for driving at an unreasonable rate of speed, as well as a warning for following too close.
