Driver flees scene following fatal crash in Hope

13 Septembre 2017

The search is on for a male driver accused of stealing a truck from firefighters at the scene of a fatal auto crash near Hope, B.C.

At about 3 p.m., Fraser Valley Traffic Service and Hope RCMP received reports of a collision between a maintenance truck and an Equinox SUV 10 kilometres east of Hope.

But when the crews got out to help, witnesses say the suspect driver took off in one of their pickup trucks.

The BC Coroners Service has confirmed that woman in her 30s has died as a result of a crash on Hwy. "It appeared as though the SUV involved in the accident was travelling at a high rate of speed and passing vehicles".

"He just smashed into that and left pieces of that vehicle like everywhere".

A man, suspected of being the driver of Equinox, allegedly left the scene in a white Ford F350 truck stolen from a Good Samaritan who had stopped to help.

"The suspect is described as a 5'9" or 5'10" Caucasian man with dark, short hair and a thin face. "If you see him, do not approach him and please call 9-1-1 immediately". He is also believed to have a slim waist, broad shoulders, and facial stubble.
