Charges have been laid against a 17-year-old boy from Prince Albert following an early morning crash involving a stolen truck in Lawson Heights.
A large construction vehicle with an attached trailer were reported stolen from Pinehouse Drive Tuesday morning. Not long after, at around 5:20 a.m., the truck was found rolled-over on someone’s front lawn at the corner of Redberry Road and Dore Crescent.
Witnesses told police that the truck was speeding right before the crash.
The 17-year-old driver was taken to hospital with injuries, then released into police custody. He will appear before a Justice of the Peace Tuesday evening on charges like breach of probation and possession of stolen property over $5,000.
The teen also has a pair of outstanding warrants in Prince Albert. Police said more charges are pending.
