The Golden-Field RCMP along with police from the Integrated Road Safety Unit and a collision analyst are currently investigating a single vehicle collision that occurred on the Moberly School Road near Golden earlier this morning.
Police along with BC Ambulance and Golden Fire-Rescue responded to the incident at approximately 7:25 am.
“We are continuing to investigate but we believe that the vehicle failed to negotiate a curve and went off road into a treed area,” stated Cst. Spencer Lainchbury, with the Golden-Field RCMP.
Both the 23 year-old male driver, and 17 year-old female passenger are from Golden and have been transported by Ambulance to Calgary with serious injuries but are expected to survive.
At this time police can also confirm that the vehicle involved in the collision was stolen from a residence just south of Golden overnight, and that charges in relation to the theft are being investigated.
