Digging deep

People were seen digging their vehicles out of the snow after they had gone off the road and into ditches along Prest Road in Chilliwack.

In situations like this, car owners are responsible for removing the snow and making their vehicle accessible so tow truck drivers can remove the vehicle.

This stretch of country road, plus others in the area, was a common place for snow drifts and blowing wind.

This was just one of a number of vehicles that went off Chilliwack’s roads during the recent snowstorm.
