The man accused of running down and severely injuring three people last month is facing 28 charges including four counts of attempted murder.

Charges against Travis Foord of Port Alberni were sworn before a justice of the peace in Port Alberni Provincial Court on May 2.

The charges include four counts of attempted murder. Initially, only three victims were reported, but there was a fourth person at the scene, RCMP Cpl. Jen Allan said.

Other charges include failure to stop at the scene of an accident, criminal negligence causing bodily harm, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, and assault causing bodily harm.

Police were called to an incident on the 2800 block of Sixth Avenue shortly after 1 a.m. on March 30, according to RCMP.

Police found a truck allegedly driven by Foord on its side with one person trapped under it, and two people laying injured nearby. The fourth person was not injured.

Rescue crews from the Port Alberni Fire Department freed the man underneath the truck, and he and the other two injured people were taken to hospital. One of the group, an adult female, was flown to Victoria.

The three, since identified as Stephone Dennis, Cam Johnson and Belinda Hainsworth, are still recovering from multiple broken bones.
