Overdue driver found down embankment west of Terrace B.C.

The woman was on her way from Prince George to Terrace when her family reported they had lost contact with her

Terrace RCMP reported that an overdue motorist and her vehicle had been found west of the city after several police detachments, family and friends had searched for her.

On July 5, around 8:50 a.m., friends of the woman who had been driving the highway, located her vehicle approximately 50 km east of Terrace on Highway 16, reported Terrace RCMP July 6.

The woman had suffered serious injuries and was immediately transported to local hospital, said police.

On July 4, just after 9 p.m., the Smithers RCMP received a report of an overdue traveller.

Earlier that day, a 26-year-old Prince George woman left from Prince George to attend Terrace regarding an urgent family matter.

The last time her family had contact with her was around 5:10 p.m. when she told her mother she was in Smithers.

A bulletin was immediately sent out to all neighbouring detachments regarding the overdue traveller and proved the traveller’s details and the vehicle she was driving.

Patrols were conducted by all affected detachments but they were not able to locate the overdue woman or her vehicle.

This included another family member who had also passed through Smithers around 7 p.m.

The cause of the incident is still under investigation, but it appears the woman’s vehicle left the road and went down a steep embankment.

It is unknown at this time what caused the woman’s vehicle to leave the roadway, but foul play is not suspected, said police.
