Po­lice News – Win­ter driv­ing takes heavy toll

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEF -

Last Tues­day, Jan­uary 5th, a vi­o­lent ac­ci­dent took place on the Stage Road in Stanstead East when a young fe­male driver swerved into the on­com­ing lane at a curve and was hit by a van com­ing in the op­po­site di­rec­tion. The young woman of eigh­teen was badly hurt and taken to the hos­pi­tal. The driver of the van was also hurt, not as se­ri­ously, and taken to the hos­pi­tal. Later in the day, a man was badly hurt in a car ac­ci­dent on the Lapierre Road, in Og­den, when his car spun out and hit a tree. The road was closed for five hours.

There have been many re­ports of ve­hi­cle col­li­sions with deer on the roads of the Mem­phrem­a­gog and Coat­i­cook MRCs in the past two weeks and driv­ers are be­ing cau­tioned to be ex­tra vig­i­lant.

The Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog (RPM) is still look­ing for the sus­pects in the theft of bags of clothes from the Ma­gog fam­ily counter. Cam­eras set up at the site cap­tured th­ese im­ages: a pur­ple elec­tric bi­cy­cle driven by a young adult male, dressed in jeans and a I LOVE NEW YORK shirt; and a pale grey Dodge Car­a­van and a large woman in her thir­ties wear­ing a white shirt, black pants, and a young thin woman wear­ing jeans and a beige coat and hat.
