Leduc RCMP Integrated Traffic Unit investigates dangerous impaired driver

Vehicle passes through occupied crosswalk, police pursue motorhome

  • Apr. 18, 2016 7:00 a.m.

Leduc, Alta. – This morning at approximately 10:20 a.m., an Integrated Traffic Unit member was travelling towards a crosswalk at 50 Street and 45 Avenue in Leduc when he observed a motorhome travelling northbound. There were approximately 10 young children at the crosswalk getting ready to cross the road. The crossing lights were activated at the crosswalk, yet the motorhome went through the crosswalk without stopping.

The RCMP member activated his emergency lights and the motorhome veered towards the RCMP vehicle destroying the driver’s side mirror. A short distance away, the motorhome stopped for the RCMP with the assistance of an Alberta Sheriff with the Integrated Traffic Unit.

The RCMP made an arrest and currently have a 63-year-old male from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan in custody at Leduc Detachment. Charges are pending and this incident remains under investigation.

There was no damage to the motorhome, and minimal damage to the RCMP car. None of the children had actually entered the crosswalk and none of the children were injured.
