Driver crawled to safety following collision…

PRINCE GEORGE, BC: A local man is recovering after a single vehicle collision left him stranded without help for two days…

Police say just after 4:00 p.m. on Thursday September 10, 2020, the Prince George RCMP received a report of a suspicious circumstance on Ness Lake Road, north of Prince George.

An off duty emergency services worker came upon an adult male crawling out of a ditch along the road. He stopped to help and called Police and paramedics. The man was suffering serious, but non-life threatening injuries and was transported to hospital for further treatment.

A search of the area found his vehicle through some bush and down a 10 metre embankment. Although the man was believed to be the only occupant of the vehicle, a Police Dog Service team attended the area to assist in looking for other persons. None were located.

The investigation has led officers to believe that the man was west bound on Ness Lake Road and went off road and down the embankment. It is believed that he was there for up to two days before crawling out to the road. He was not wearing a seatbelt and the vehicle was not insured.

Released by Prince George RCMP
