A thirteen year old and a sixteen year old were arrested yesterday after stealing a big rig and driving it dangerously as part of what police are calling “a bit of a crime spree.”
Police Receive Reports Of Semi’s Dangerous Driving
The crime spree came to an end yesterday around 8 a.m. in Dawson Creek, British Columbia, when police received word of a semi driving erratically. According to witnesses, the truck had nearly hit multiple vehicles while attempting to make a turn onto the Alaskan Highway.
The driver didn’t stop when police tried to pull the truck over, so police chose not to pursue for safety reasons.
Later, an officer in an unmarked vehicle was able to get in front of the truck and force it to stop.
