A Trail man says his brakes went out on him Tuesday when he went flying through an intersection coming into the city and took out two other vehicles in his path.
But luckily the three-vehicle collision at the corner of Highway 22 and Rossland Avenue resulted in no injuries.
Dave Turner was feeling “super pissed off,” leaned against his Dodge Dakota pickup that is damaged after he ran the red light coming into Trail at around 11:30 a.m.
“I was coming down the hill, seen the red light, I was coming down in second and went to put it into drive and when I put it in drive the brakes just locked up on me and it wouldn’t stop,” he said.
“I hit the blue (car) and then I guess I hit the city (truck) after that.
“I tried to swerve around it but there was no way of swerving around it.”
The truck smashed into a Toyota Tercel that was making a left-hand turn onto Rossland Avenue toward the Gulch and in the midst of the crash, a city truck behind the car also got banged up.
“We’re still trying to figure everything out,” said Trail RCMP’s Cpl. Mike Wilson. “I think there was a bit of ricocheting around. He definitely hit one and we think that one hit the second but we’re not sure at this time.”
