Just after midnight Dec. 20, Delta Police responded to a report of a single vehicle collision in the 3500 block of River Road West.
“The initial investigation has revealed that the driver of a truck lost control of his vehicle at a bend in the road, and it rolled a number of times,” says Cris Leykauf, spokesperson for Delta Police. “Unfortunately the driver and passenger, both Delta residents, sustained serious injuries in the collision and were transported to hospital.” The men’s injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
