In addition to the terrible railway accident in Burns Lake on Halloween eve, two other accidents were reported to Burns Lake RCMP at around the same time.
On Nov. 1, at approximately 4:30 a.m. Two young men were struck by a truck in a hit and run incident on Babine Lake Rd. near the Burns Lake Pentecostal Church. Burns Lake RCMP report that one man received non-life threatening injuries, and the second man had minimal injuries. Both men were taking to Lakes District Hospital for treatment and released.
Police are pursuing leads on the driver of the truck, but further information will not be released as it could interfere with there investigation.
A second accident occurred, again at around the same time on the Southside. A single passenger vehicle went off the road in the Uncha Lake Rd. area. Emergency services were called to respond, although further details are unavailable.
If anyone has any information related to either of these incidents, they are asked to contact Burns Lake RCMP at 250-692-7171.
