No injuries reported in Tuesday morning collision

No one was injured in a single vehicle collision on Highway 4 around 9 a.m.

Tuesday.

when they lost control coming around a corner east of Hydro Hill, according

to Sgt. Jeff Swann of the Ucluelet RCMP.

The vehicle rolled over and came to a stop on its roof.

The driver escaped uninjured but was checked over by BC Ambulance personnel

because of the severity of the crash

Swann said an investigation into the cause of the accident is ongoing.

Alleged smokers booted from vacation rental

Ucluelet RCMP were called to a vacation rental on Saturday Night where

tenants were believed to be smoking inside.

The vacation rental’s owner requested the RCMP’s assistance to evict the

alleged smokers who left without incident, according to Sgt. Swann.

Swann said police are rarely called to these types of situations.

"It’s something that resorts and properties need to handle themselves and go

check and do their own investigation; it’s not something we want the police

to be called to all the time," Swann said. "It’s a rare call for us to get,

usually it’s handled by other means."
