Once firefighters determined the driver was the only one in the vehicle the scene was turned over to the Elk Valley RCMP to investigate.

“The Elkford Fire Department wishes to thank the alert citizens who contacted 9-1-1 about this incident, and we commend them for taking swift action to call this in,” said Elkford’s Acting Fire Chief, Enzo Calla in a release.

“We also extend our thanks to the BC Ambulance Service and Elk Valley RCMP for their rapid response time.”

Due to the late time of night, the vehicle was left in place overnight and was recovered in daylight hours.
