17 Year Old Saskatoon Youth Facing Charges Following Single Vehicle Collision

A 17 year old Saskatoon boy is facing a number of charges after being involved in a single vehicle collision Saturday night. Shortly before 11:00 PM police received a call reporting a truck stolen from the 900 block of Ave N S. Apparently the caller's intoxicated, 17 year old son had taken the truck without permission.

Approximately 15 minutes later police were called to the 100 bock of Smallwood Cres after the stolen truck collided with a tree. Fortunately the boy was not hurt.

The youth was taken in to custody and is charged with impaired driving, driving while over .08, possession of stolen property as well as possession of restricted narcotics. He will remain in custody until he sees a Justice of the Peace on Sunday.
