A driver is facing charges after several near-collisions early this morning ended when her vehicle rolled over in Red Deer’s Glendale neighbourhood.

Shortly after midnight, a Red Deer RCMP officer who was patrolling in a marked police car saw a black SUV driving northbound on 51st Avenue, which is a southbound one-way street. This was in the area of 53rd Street.

The vehicle was being driven in an erratic manner. When RCMP initiated emergency lights to conduct a traffic stop, the vehicle sped up. It narrowly missed hitting several oncoming vehicles and hit the curb before continuing on at a high rate of speed.

Due to public safety concerns, RCMP did not initiate a pursuit but tracked the vehicle at a distance as it continued north. The SUV entered the Glendale neighbourhood, where it struck a parked flatbed trailer and overturned. Neither the female driver nor the male passenger were injured in the rollover.

RCMP took a 25-year-old woman from Sylvan Lake into custody and will release an update once the charges have been sworn before the court.

Anyone who witnessed this series of events is asked to call Red Deer RCMP Const. Ryan Kinney at 403-406-2300. If you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
