Dawson Creek RCMP were called at about 8:45 this morning to the scene of a motor vehicle wreck discovered in a farmer’s field. The wreckage was located near the juncture of 212 Road and the 219 Road approximately 5 km north of Dawson Creek.

Police found a vehicle, a black Kia SUV, resting on its roof. Initial indications are that the vehicle was northbound on 212 Road when it veered off the roadway as it approached a turn. The vehicle passed through the field, turning end over end, crossing a clump of small trees and bush before coming to rest.
