A woman is facing charges after vehicles and property were damaged in the Lancaster and Vanier area of Red Deer.
Last Thursday, Red Deer RCMP received a number of complaints regarding a black truck driving recklessly, crashing into parked vehicles and a bus stop.
RCMP responded and were able to track down the vehicle with help from witnesses.
The badly damaged pickup, missing its front passenger wheel, was found at the intersection of Lindman Avenue and Lancaster Drive.
“When police arrived on scene, witnesses were attempting to detain the suspect, who was attempting to flee,” said RCMP.
A 46-year-old woman was arrested and is facing numerous Criminal Code and Traffic Safety Act charges.
There were no reported injuries as a result of the collisions.
“Many witnesses called police to report this dangerous driver, and the updates provided to police ensured the driver was quickly located,” said RCMP.
“Additionally, the quick-thinking actions of the witnesses on scene prevented the driver from fleeing and causing further damage.”
