Investigation ongoing into fatal Aug. 12 watercraft collision in Charlottetown Harbour

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - The investigation into a fatality in the Charlottetown Harbour over the summer remains ongoing.

In August, a 21-year-old Island man died as a result of injuries he received after the personal watercraft he was operating collided with another one.

Sgt. Leanne Butler with the RCMP said the primary officer in charge of the complex investigation was out of commission for a couple of weeks after having surgery but said he returned to work and has made this investigation a top priority.

The officer was waiting to receive final reports from the various agencies the RCMP has been consulting with, and he will meet with the Crown to determine if charges will be laid.

“We should have something soon,” Butler told The Guardian. “I think it will be imminent, before Christmas I’d say.”
