Julie Plourde is the Media Relations Officer with the Northwest Territories RCMP in Yellowknife.
“At approximately 3:15 p.m., on Monday, November 19, the Yellowknife RCMP attended a motor vehicle collision at the intersection of Kam Lake Road and Woolgar Avenue,” Plourde said. “A female driver was transported to the hospital for treatment of a non-life threatening injury.”
