A Prince George man has been charged and is facing possible license prohibitions after a dangerous-driving incident this week. 

Cpl. Craig Douglass says police responded to a vehicle collision and disturbance on Highway 97 at Houghtaling Road on Tuesday (June 30) just before noon. 

A witness reported a car had t-boned a full-sized pick-up truck and continued to push the car across three lanes of the highway and over the curb. The two drivers then engaged in a physical fight. 

When police attended the scene, the driver of the car was attempting to walk away from the scene, but was arrested by Mounties. 

Douglass says based on the current findings of the investigation, it is believed the incident was a result of a dispute between the two drivers that are known to each other. 

"Evidence and witness accounts indicate that the driver of the vehicle had deliberately crashed into the pick-up and pushed it off the highway and up onto a curb," Douglass says in a release. 

"The truck was occupied by an adult male driver and an adult female passenger. A number of vehicles traveling on the highway at the time had to abruptly brake to avoid being apart of the incident."

The B.C. Prosecution Service has approved a charge of Dangerous Driving against 39-year-old Brandon James Peters of Prince George.

He was held in custody overnight and released on strict conditions, including no contact with the occupants of the other vehicle. He is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 5, 2020.

A high-risk driving report will also be sent to the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles for consideration of a driving license prohibition. 

"This matter is still under investigation and further charges are possible," Douglass adds.  

"Our Municipal Traffic Services Section are seeking any witnesses or dash camera footage of the two vehicles operating prior to the collision."

Drugs and alcohol are not believed to have been a factor in the incident.

He asks that anyone that can assist in the investigation is asked to contact the Prince George RCMP detachment at 250-561-3300.
