The trial of Richard Van of 1210 3rd Ave. S. reached its final stages with the prosecution and defence having summed up their cases. Provincial Judge A. H. Elford and defence lawyer Dick Williams dis- agreed on the testimony of Benjamin of 620 12th St. S Mr. Lee told the court he was struck by a car April 3 in an alley intersection behind Value Village Markets on 6th Ave. S. He said although he was not seriously the car that struck him failed to remain at the scene of the accident. The car which him was a blue Datsun or Toyota with big black stripes on the he said. The controversy between Provincial Judge Elford and Mr Williams arose over the identity of a passenger in the car. Mr Lee said he didn't recognize the driver but did recognize a passenger Mr Williams said although Mr. Lee knew Dale he was a passenger in a car in the area about the time the accident he didn't identify him to police after the accident occurred. don't think there is suf- hcient evidence to identity the Mr Williams said Provincial Judge Elford said he interpreted Mr Lee differently Because of the importance of the evidence in relation to the identification of Mr Rhodes. Provincial Judge Elford said he would listen to the tape recording of Mr. Lee's testimony He said he would give his verdict in a week's time Crown prosecutor Art Larson said there wasn't any doubt in the world that the striped Datsun belonging to Mr Van Sluys was the one that struck Mr. Lee. Mr Larson said Mr Rhodes had earlier testified he had been in the intersection behind Value Village with Mr. Van Sluys in a blue Datsun with black stripes about the time the accident occurred. He said Mr. Lee testified he had never seen the car that struck him before the ac- cident Earlier in the Mr. Larson accused Mr. Rhodes of lying. Mr. Larson asked Mr. Rhodes if anything had happened when he and Mr. Van Sluys had been driving behind Value Village. Mr. Rhodes said nothing had happened. Mr. Larson then showed Mr. Rhodes a signed statement the witness had given police after the accient. It said the Van Sluys in which he was a had struck a boy behind Value Village. The statement said the boy fell back against a fence and was holding his leg. They thought the boy was all so they continued it said. When asked why he would give such a Mr. Rhodes said the police had pressured them into making it. The two policemen who investigated the accident told the court they did not pressure Mr. Van Sluys or Mr. Rhodes into making statements. Mr Van Sluys also told the court he had been pressured into making a statement. When Provincial Judge Elford asked Mr. Rhodes how he knew that Mr. Lee fell back against a fence and hurt his leg he said he heard one of the constables say the boy had hurt his leg and he made the rest up. In summing up his case Mr. Larson said if Mr. Van Sluys and Mr. Rhodes knew they were in an accident they were required by law unstop even if they thought nobody was hurt. Court was told that while Mr. Van Sluys was at the police station following the ac- cident his car was searched and police found a bag of marijuana. Mr. Van Sluys was charged with possession of pleaded guilty and was fined in provincial court Wednesday.
