Pickup truck motorist drives up vehicle ramp and onto parked trailer on Chilliwack road

The incident happened on Young Road after Chilliwack was handed another dump of snow Friday night

Well, that’s one way to get a free lift.

The driver of a pickup truck must have had pretty good aim when their vehicle drove right up and onto a trailer on Young Road in Chilliwack Saturday morning.

A white pickup truck with a trailer attached to it was parked southbound on Young Road, south of Chilliwack Central Road.

The driver of the second pickup, a black vehicle, was travelling southbound and ended up driving up the ramp of the trailer. The pickup landed on an angle, mostly on the trailer but with the driver’s side wheels hanging off the side.

The incident happened after Chilliwack was handed another dump of snow Friday night.
