On Tuesday, April 14, 2020, just before 9pm, Fort St John RCMP received a report of a single vehicle rollover which occurred on the Alaska Highway, just north of the intersection with Highway 29. 

The driver was northbound on the Alaska Highway when they lost control while attempting to pass another vehicle and rolled over into a ditch filled with water.  The driver, the lone occupant of the vehicle, was submerged in water on the southbound side of the road. 

Prior to police arrival at the site, passing motorists and a local resident were able to remove the driver from the vehicle and revive them roadside.  The driver was transported to hospital and later flown to Prince George in stable condition.

The investigation into the traffic incident is ongoing.

The Fort St John RCMP would like to thank all those who stopped and assisted in the rescue, their actions saved the life of this driver.
