PRINCE GEORGE, BC: A Prince George man is facing charges after smashing into a vehicle and a fence on Massey Dr. and Ospika Blvd Saturday afternoon…
Police say at approximately 3:30 PM, calls began coming in of a driver being reckless on Massey Dr. and Ospika Blvd. Members of the public provided updates to police as frontline officers were enroute.
