There was one male occupant of the pickup truck that was crossing a bridge. Police say the male lost control of the truck while crossing a bridge and it rolled down an embankment. He was ejected from the vehicle.

The man suffered serious, but non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a Vancouver hospital for treatment.

Police are continuing their investigation but say that the vehicle was probably travelling at a high speed and the male was not wearing a seatbelt when the accident occurred. However, they add that alcohol was probably not a factor in the crash.

The male’s name is not being released but police say he is a resident of the Peace Region.
