Cranbrook RCMP are currently investigating what witnesses call ‘Fast and the Furious’ Cranbrook-style.

On Tuesday morning Cranbrook RCMP responded to a call of three vehicles driving erratically on Industrial Rd No 1. The three cars were speeding, weaving in and out and passing on the right hand side. The vehicles continued their careless driving down the strip and up Victoria Avenue.

One witness to the driving asked police of they had seen the movie Fast and Furious or The Italian Job.  The witness went on to say that the driving of these young men appeared to them to be replicas of those movies.

The witness was able to provide plate numbers and vehicle descriptions and police are continuing to investigate.  All three vehicles were registered to out of Province owners.

“Driving that carelessly is just a catastrophe waiting to happen,” said Cst. Katie Forgeron. “That route is well travelled by vehicles and pedestrians. One wrong move could have hurt either the drivers of the vehicles, their passengers, or more tragically, an innocent passerby.”
