CHETWYND, B.C. – A man suffered minor injuries after a motor vehicle accident south of Chetwynd last Friday.

Shortly after 2:00 p.m., the Chetwynd RCMP received a call from the motorist, who said that he was in medical distress after losing control of his vehicle. Officers arrived at the scene where they discovered the motorist’s Dodge pickup truck had slid 18 metres down an embankment approximately 1 kilometre up the Lone Prairie Road.

Members of the Chetwynd Fire Department were called out when police were unable to free the man. Sgt. Scott Hromadnik with the Chetwynd RCMP said that the man suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital to be treated. He has since been released.
