A westbound travelling green Dodge pickup truck had collided with an eastbound travelling orange Chevrolet Bel Air, he said.

“Despite wearing a safety belt one female passenger of the Chevy Bel Air was ejected from the vehicle but, miraculously, suffered only minor injuries,” Paradis explained.

“The male driver of the Chevy Bel Air sustained non-life threatening injuries.”

RCMP located the pickup truck unoccupied after it fled the scene “a short distance away.”

The investigation is ongoing.
