Maple Ridge, B.C. – Police are actively investigating an erratic driving incident which occurred in east Maple Ridge.

On Wednesday, April 6, at around 5 p.m., police received a report of a vehicle driving erratically in the 27100 block area of Dewdney Trunk. The vehicle, which appears to look like a de-commissioned ambulance, was breaking hard and swerving. At one point, the vehicle came to a complete stop and two men got out of the driver and passenger sides and walked towards the rear of the car.

Police have identified the registered owners of the two vehicles involved in this incident. Social media speculation suggested a possibility that a firearm was produced in this incident however, at this early stage, investigators have not produced reliable information to suggest that a firearm was involved.

This can be a scary event for any driver to witness. Road conflicts can occur for numerous reasons and this person did the right thing by staying in their vehicle, states Sergeant Amanda Harnett. I wish to caution the public, however, against any speculation as to the motive behind the incident. This investigation is still active and ongoing.

Police are interested in speaking with anyone who has further information about this incident. If you have information and have not already spoken with police, please call 604-463-6251.
