Chilliwack: RCMP are seeking witnesses to a collision that occurred on April 30th. The victim was travelling eastbound on highway 1 in a Toyota Corolla. As the victim was approaching the Prest Road exit his vehicle was struck from behind by a semi transport truck. This caused the vehicle to go off road and flip into a water filled ditch.

Len vanNieuwenhuizen. “We have classified this as a criminal code hit and run and are treating this very seriously.” The rear bumper of the victim vehicle has been seized for forensic examination with the hope of identifying the offending vehicle.
