Overturned car found in water-filled Pitt Meadows ditch

Vehicle discovered abandoned

A vehicle was discovered overturned in a water-filled ditch in Pitt Meadows Wednesday morning, with nobody inside.

The Pitt Meadows fire department were called to the scene at about 4:30 a.m. March 30 by a delivery driver and the driver of a tractor trailer, who came upon the vehicle near the intersection of Ford Road Detour and Woolridge Road.

The vehicle was heavily damaged and upside down in the water-filled ditch, about a half to three quarters submerged, estimated assistant fire chief Dave Biggin.

“We searched the ditch, we searched the surrounding fields and nothing found,” said Biggin.

They left the vehicle in the care of the RCMP.

Police said that they received a call from BC Health Services at around 4:45 a.m. about a single vehicle roll-over incident.

They said nobody associated to the vehicle was at the scene and there was no evidence of injury.

RCMP Police Dog services did attend but a track was unsuccessful.

However, the registered owner of the car has been contacted, police added.
