Pedestrian hurt

A  pedestrian was injured when struck by a car Friday at Jubilee Road and North Victoria Road. The car was making a left turn at the time. The pedestrian, who was taken to hospital by ambulance, appeared to have a broken leg, said police. Investigation of the accident continues.

Yacht Club damage

Somebody keeps vandalizing property at the Summerland Yacht Club. The vandalism has been occurring on weekends and has caused damage to boats and trailers. Police plan to do extra patrols in the area. There are no suspects.

False 911 calls

Pocket dialers are wasting emergency response resources in Summerland. Police said there have been a number of false 911 calls from cell phones, including three in the last week. Apparently the callers have been too embarrassed to call in and admit they accidentally called 911. As a result police have to spend time looking for the emergency, searching the large area around the cell phone tower that transmitted the call. Police ask people to be careful to not dial 911 unnecessarily, and to admit it when they do.

Belts on and phones off

Police are out this month looking for distracted drivers and vehicle occupants failing to use seatbelts. In the last week Summerland RCMP have issued five tickets for no seatbelts and one ticket for using an electronic device while driving.

Vehicle damaged

 

A collision at the corner of Prairie Valley Road and Doherty Road last week resulted in damage to one vehicle that had to be towed away. The street surface was slippery at the time of the crash.
