Dangerous driver terrorizes Evans road motorists

RCMP are looking for witnesses who may have seen a brown Ford Ranger force 15 cars off the road early last Friday morning.

Chilliwack RCMP are asking for public help to find a dangerous driver.

Around 4:20 a.m. last Friday morning a police officer saw a brown Ford Ranger pulling a trailer southbound on the Eagle Landing Parkway, drifting across the center line as it went. The officer turned his car around and followed the truck, which veered sharply into oncoming traffic, then went through the Evans Road roundabout in the wrong direction.

The officer turned on its lights and sirens, trying to get the truck to pull over.

But that only made things worse. As the truck continued at a faster pace down Evans Road, still in the oncoming lane, it forced another 10 vehicles off the road. Another five were forced to the side on South Sumas Road, at which point the officer decided it was too dangerous to continue.

A suspect has been identified,” said RCMP Cst. Ashley St. Germaine, “we are asking the drivers who were forced off the road to phone the Chilliwack RCMP to provide further information for evidence.”

Contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611.
