Lawsuit claims Alberta Mounties didn’t properly investigate drunk driver

A man seriously injured in a vehicle rollover claims in a lawsuit that RCMP officers failed to properly investigate the driver who had been drinking.

CALGARY — A man seriously injured in a vehicle rollover claims in a lawsuit that RCMP officers failed to properly investigate the driver who had been drinking.

Glen Primrose suffered a spinal injury that has left him partially disabled.

Primrose was a passenger the night two years ago when Mounties pulled over Corey Moscaluk near Three Hills in central Alberta.

He claims in his lawsuit that Moscaluk wasn’t charged and the police were negligent because they didn’t do anything to ensure he didn’t drive anymore that night.

Moscaluk, who is also named as a defendant, pleaded guilty last spring to impaired driving causing bodily harm in the rollover, and was given a 15-month conditional sentence and three-year driving suspension.

Statements of defence have not yet been filed.
