Sunshine coast crash into bleachers

Sunshine Coast: Sechelt emergency services were called to Hackett Park, after a minivan crashed through a set of bleachers. Remarkably, there were no reports of injuries to any of the spectators on or around the bleachers, who were watching a baseball game at the time.

After speaking with witnesses, police determined that a 15 year old girl from Sechelt had been driving, and had a 17 year old female passenger.  It appears the driver had been turning onto Dolphin Street from Ocean Avenue, and may have lost control when she swerved to avoid a cyclist. The driver, who cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, failed a roadside breath test, and was arrested for impaired driving.
