Three people charged by police

A stolen truck spotted in the Wetaskiwin area was involved in a multi-vehicle crash in Edmonton on Monday.

Wetaskiwin RCMP said at about 12:50 p.m., the truck was seen in the Maskwacis area before it was driven to Leduc, where officers attempted a traffic stop.

The driver of the truck rammed an RCMP vehicle and fled into the Edmonton area. A female who had been in the vehicle was taken into custody at a Leduc gas station.

Police said the vehicle was driven erratically throughout Edmonton before it was involved in a collision with two vehicles at the intersection of 99th Street and 82nd Avenue.

The female driver of one of the vehicles received minor injuries and was taken to hospital. Two occupants from the suspect vehicle attempted to flee on foot, but were apprehended by Edmonton Police Service.

Clinton Littlechild, 23, of Edmonton, was charged with assault on a police officer, two counts of flight from police, three counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, and two counts of failure to comply with release order conditions.

He was remanded into custody and will appear in Wetaskiwin provincial court on Thursday.

Joyce Ward, 30, of Alix, was charged with possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000 and failing to comply with a probation order.

Terra Crane, 31, of Edmonton, was charged with possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000.

Both Ward and Crane were released from custody and are scheduled to appear in Wetaskiwin provincial court on March 3.
