Serious collision on Moberly School Road involving stolen vehicle

Two passengers sustained serious injuries but are expected to survive following the single vehicle incident Wednesday morning.

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.
