Embankment crash in Harrison ends with minor injuries

Driver, dog reunited after rescue

Multiple reports of emergency vehicles traveling to East Harrison Forest Service Road (FSR) peppered local social media Monday afternoon.

Sgt. Mike Sargent of the Agassiz RCMP confirmed reports of a vehicle down an embankment at the 14.6 kilometre mark of East Harrison FSR. The Agassiz RCMP, Agassiz Fire Department, B.C. Ambulance and Kent-Harrison Search and Rescue were on the scene.

“Shortly after they arrived on scene, the driver of the vehicle called the detachment to report they had gone off the side of the road the night before,” Sargent said in a statement. “They were able to climb up and were transported out of the area by a logging truck driver.”

The driver suffered non-life threatening injuries, and a dog belonging to the driver was found unharmed at the scene and soon reunited with its owner.

“The Agassiz RCMP are reminding the public to exercise caution when travelling on backcountry roads in the area,” Sargent said.
