During the Halloween season, calls for police service were set at an average pace with no major incident to note. Patrols were made during the night and several young people were observed trick or treating in a safe manner with proper visibility and road safety.


Police were called to a pub at Red Mountain in the early hours of Nov. 1. An intoxicated male had fallen off a balcony during closing time and fell 12 feet to a lower balcony. The male was conscious and treated for possible back and neck injuries by Emergency Health Services who then took the male to the hospital. The incident was not suspicious and deemed an accident.


On Nov. 5 at 6:30 a.m. a two vehicle collision occurred on Highway 22 at Stoney Creek Rd during the process of a left hand turn. The drivers of each vehicle were taken by ambulance to Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital with minor injuries and one driver needed to be extracted from his vehicle by Kootenay Boundary Regional Fire Rescue.

With the change in weather the Trail RCMP would like to remind everyone to be aware of road conditions. Lighting and weather changes can quickly this time of year.
