Cops suspect alcohol involved in spectacular Scott Road crash

DELTA — Police are investigating a motorist for impaired driving after the one-ton landscaping truck he was driving crashed into a car and then a hair styling school Monday evening in North Delta.

The crash happened at 8:10 p.m., in the 9200-block of Scott Road. The BC Ambulance Service took the 45-year-old truck driver, his 43-year-old male passenger, and the 50-year-old female car driver to hospital to be treated for injuries that weren’t considered to be life threatening.

Sgt. Sarah Swallow of the Delta Police said the truck driver was given a 24-hour driving suspension at the scene. She said police are “investigating the possibility of alcohol being involved” in the crash, which caused significant damage to the car and Sonu Hair Dressing & Esthetics School.
