A man was injured in an industrial accident shortly before 10 a.m. Saturday at the corner of Maple Grove Lane and Anderson St. in Nelson.

Police, firefighters, and paramedics all responded and found that a dump truck, trailer, and excavator had all rolled down an embankment.

The operator, who was on the excavator at the time, was found nearby and went to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. WorkSafeBC also attended the scene and is investigating.

The equipment has all since been removed.

Sgt. Dino Falcone said police weren’t able to release more details before consulting with WorkSafeBC.

Woman faces fraud charges

Nelson police responded Thursday to a complaint of a drunk, uncooperative woman in a home. With some coaxing she agreed to leave and was taken to hospital at her request.

Later that day, police arrested the same woman for fraud and possession of stolen property. She was also being sought by Castlegar RCMP for related offences.

She’s being held for a bail hearing this week.

Driver issued suspension

On Friday morning, Nelson police were called to a local convenience store about an unresponsive woman. They found her slumped over in the driver’s seat of her vehicle.

They smelled alcohol on her but couldn’t wake her, so she was taken to hospital.

Police say it was determined she was drunk and under the influence of drugs as well. She was issued a driving suspension and her vehicle towed.
