50-Yr-Old Driver Charged After Crashing Stolen Truck On Main Street, 4 Taken To Hospital

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 26 Aug, 2018
  • 50-Yr-Old Driver Charged After Crashing Stolen Truck On Main Street, 4 Taken To Hospital
Four people have been taken to hospital this evening for medical assessment following a multi-vehicle collision on Main Street involving a suspected stolen pick-up truck. The Vancouver Police Collision Investigation Unit is working to determine what may have led to the collision.
 
 
Just after 5 p.m., officers using their lights and sirens attempted to pull over a suspected stolen pick-up truck on Main near Pender. The driver chose not to comply and fled south on Main. Out of concern for public safety, the officers made the decision not to pursue the truck.
 
 
A short time later, the pick-up collided with a white Ford Focus on Main Street at Prior before bouncing into vehicles parked along the east side of Main Street. The two occupants of the pick-up were arrested at the scene and then transported to hospital by ambulance for medical assessment.
 
 
At least two other people involved in the collision were taken to hospital with what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.
 
 
Police alleged 50-year-old Andrew Barry Curtis Dollman was behind the wheel of a pickup that slammed into a Ford Focus near Prior Street then hit two parked vehicles.
 
 
Dollman was arrested shortly after the crash, and police confirmed Sunday that counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, possession of stolen property, flight from a peace officer, and failure to stop at the scene of an accident have since been approved against him.
 
 
It is still very early in the investigation and there is limited information available at this time.
 
 
The IIO has been notified and is monitoring the investigation.
