Alleged: Garth James Schuck
A 24-year-old man faces charges in a high-speed collision that killed his dog and destroyed two other vehicles on Jasper Avenue early Wednesday night.
Garth James Schuck, 24, is charged with dangerous driving, cruelty to animals in causing the death of a dog and breach of recognizance for the crash. Police say alcohol or drugs were not factors in the collision.
Police say the crash occurred when a Honda Civic heading west on Jasper Avenue at about 100 kilometres per hour hit a parked Dodge Challenger.
The force of the collision pushed the Dodge into another parked car, sending that car down a city block and onto the sidewalk. Schuck had to be cut out of the wreckage and was taken to hospital with undisclosed injuries. The dog was killed instantly.
Police spokeswoman Clair Seyler said the matter is still under investigation.
"We don't think he was trying to hurt anyone else," she said.
In May, the St. Albert Gazette reported that Schuck, who was a member of the Canadian military, was charged with trafficking a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, and several counts of administering a noxious substance.
The paper said the charges arose from an alleged incident where two female members of the Canadian Forces became sick after drinking Tim Hortons coffee given to them by another military member. A search allegedly turned up ecstasy tablets.
