The vehicle then accelerated and swerved in front of the vehicle to cut it off. The vehicle continued to accelerate. Police visually estimated the vehicle’s speed at 110 km/h.

• Oct. 15, 1:41 a.m., 9400-block Highway 99: Police were notified by Emergency Health Services of a two-vehicle collision. A driver was traveling southbound on Highway 99 in his Dodge when he rear-ended a tractor-trailer. The Dodge was a total loss. Airbags were deployed, resulting in minor injuries to the driver. No injury to the tractor-trailer driver, minor damage was done to the trailer. When police arrived on the scene, the Dodge driver advised the cause of the accident was the result of his brakes failing. Police detected the odour of liquor on the Dodge driver’s breath, and detained him for investigation of impaired operation of a motor vehicle. The Dodge driver was later transported to hospital where police made a demand for blood work. The investigation is continuing.

• Between Oct. 15 at 9:00 p.m. and Oct. 16 at 7:50 a.m., 9200-block 114th St.: Two unlocked vehicles were rummaged through.
