A bull was killed, and two people were injured after a vehicle collision in Mount Currie this week, police said.

At about 7:15 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 4, Pemberton RCMP attended the scene of the collision on Highway 99 and Xitoclaw Road, where they learned the driver of a Ford F150 was unable to avoid a bull that had run onto the road.

The driver and a passenger were taken to hospital with minor injuries. The bull did not survive the collision. The vehicle was heavily damaged, police said, and towed from the scene.

IMPAIRED VANCOUVER MAN INJURED IN VEHICLE ROLLOVER ON HIGHWAY 99

A Vancouver man who police said was impaired at the time was injured after rolling his vehicle over on Highway 99 last week, police said in a release.

At about 12:10 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 30, Whistler RCMP responded to the single-vehicle incident near Retta Lake Road. Police have since learned that the vehicle struck road barriers while travelling southbound and rolled over. The driver, a 22-year-old man, managed to escape the vehicle and was taken to hospital with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries, police said. Ultimately, the driver was found to be impaired while behind the wheel and had his driver's licence suspended and his vehicle impounded, police said.
