‘Drunk Albertans’ crash into strata gate

Residents of a gated strata complex on Sherman Road received a rude awakening late on Tuesday night.

Around midnight, a truck with Alberta plates came tearing down Truesdale Street and crashed through the closed entryway to Brookside Gates, then collided with a parked vehicle inside.

"A bunch of drunk Albertans came ripping down Truesdale and didn’t see the gate," Brookside resident Jason Adair said. "They smashed it to hell and took off."

South End volunteer firefighters responded, as did the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP. "The investigation is still ongoing, and the police are looking to speak to any witnesses, and the owner of the truck," spokesperson Cpl. Jon Stuart said.

Anyone with more information should contact the RCMP at 250-748-5522.
