Injured Prince George woman discovered day after crash

A 26-year-old Prince George woman is in hospital with serious injuries after her car went off Highway 16 near Terrace Saturday night.

A 26-year-old Prince George woman is in hospital with serious injuries after her car went off Highway 16 near Terrace Saturday night.

The injured woman apparently spent the night in the car before being discovered Sunday morning by friends who had started to search for her.

Smithers RCMP say they received a call about an overdue traveller at about 9 p.m. Saturday, July 4.

Earlier that day, a 26-year-old Prince George woman left from Prince George to attend Terrace regarding an urgent family matter. The last time her family had contact with her was around 5:10 p.m. when she told her mother she was in Smithers.

A bulletin was immediately sent out to all neighbouring detachments regarding the overdue traveller. Patrols were conducted by all affected detachments but they were not able to locate the overdue woman or her vehicle. This included another family member who had also passed through Smithers around 7 p.m.

At about 8:50 a.m. Sunday, friends of the woman who had been driving the highway located her vehicle approximately 50 kilometres east of Terrace on Highway 16.

The cause of the incident is still under investigation, but it appears the woman’s vehicle left the road and went down a steep embankment. The woman suffered serious injuries and was immediately transported to local hospital.

It is unknown at this time what caused the woman’s vehicle to leave the roadway, but foul play is not suspected.
