One man was taken to hospital after the truck he was driving rolled down an embankment off Lougheed Highway on Saturday.

RCMP and fire crews were called just before 10 p.m.

A Toyota pickup rolled about 50 feet down an embankment in the 24500-block of Lougheed Hwy. and hit a light post. Police could not confirm if it caught fire, but according to reports, other motorists put out the fire and pulled the unconscious driver to safety.

The Maple Ridge fire department and B.C. Ambulance attended. The male driver of the truck was taken to hospital with “significant injuries,” police said.

It’s not known if they are life-threatening.

The investigation continues. A K9 unit attended to search for a possible second occupant who may have been ejected from the vehicle.

“Impaired driving is being looked at,” police said.
