RCMP respond to mail theft from rural post office

Mail was reported stolen from a post office in the village of Veteran, about 200 kilometres west of Red Deer on Friday, and the suspects were later involved in a collision.

Consort RCMP said its officers responded to the theft at about 5:37 a.m., and officers from several detachments attempted to contain the SUV suspected of being involved.

The vehicle was located at about 8:30 a.m., heavily damaged, and was believed to have been driven off an embankment north of Chipman, northeast of Edmonton.

Two adult males in the vehicle suffered serious life-threatening injuries. One was taken by STARS air ambulance, and the other by ground ambulance, to an Edmonton hospital.
