Vedder Road closed briefly Friday

Chilliwack RCMP are still looking for a vehicle that hit some wires and tore them loose causing the temporary closure of Vedder Road on Friday.

"The wires were down and laying across the road," RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said on Monday.

She said the vehicle may have hit the wires inadvertently, but police are still investigating.

The road was briefly closed at about 2:45 p.m. after the Chilliwack Fire Department and BC Hydro attended the scene. The wires turned out to be a Telus/Shaw cable.
