A Red Deer man faces multiple charges after the stolen truck he was driving struck an SUV at the intersection of Oliver Street and Taylor Drive the evening of May 25th.
At approximately 8:45 p.m., members of the Red Deer detachment and Red Deer Traffic Services responded to the collision.
A Ford F350 pickup truck had collided with a Dodge Journey SUV in what appeared to be an intersection related violation. At that time, the investigators determined that the pickup truck was stolen out of Red Deer, and the 29-year-old driver was arrested. The occupants of the SUV included a 78-year-old female driver and two children, ages eight and six. The female driver was transported to hospital with serious injuries not believed to be life-threatening. The two children were examined at the scene by EMS, and have since been released to their parents, uninjured.
During the suspect’s arrest, RCMP seized numerous pieces of identification including passports and driver’s licenses, a bag of vehicle keys, break-in instruments, a bag of costume jewellery and electronics from the truck. More charges may be pending as RCMP track ownership of these items.
Ryan Shane Schuster, 29, faces the charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm, possession of stolen property over $5,000, two counts of failing to comply with conditions and two counts of failing to comply with probation.
