Maple Ridge, B.C – Ridge Meadows RCMP responded to multiple calls regarding two vehicles being operated in a dangerous and erratic manner in the downtown Maple Ridge area yesterday.
On May 10, 2021 at approximately 1:15 pm, police received numerous reports regarding a Grey Dodge pickup truck and a Blue Dodge Durango being driven dangerously and at high rates of speed while intentionally ramming their vehicles into each other. Reports described the altercation beginning in a shopping mall parking lot on 224th street, travelled North on 224th street and progressed East along Dewdney Trunk road. The vehicles finally came to a stop at the intersection of 227th Street and 119 Avenue, when two men jumped from the vehicles and began physically fighting on the street. The two cars also crashed into multiple unassociated vehicles during the incident.
Two men, who are brothers, were arrested at scene and are facing multiple charges. This event is not related to recent gang activity and no injuries occurred.
This type of behavior was completely dangerous and reckless. These two people were so engrossed in whatever their drama was that they weren’t thinking about any other person other than themselves, states Constable Julie Klaussner.
Thank you to the public for the overwhelming number of reports and updates helping police to shut down this incident quickly. Thankfully no-one was seriously injured in this reckless event.
