Chetwynd RCMP are looking for a truck driver who may have caused a fiery crash on Highway 97 last December.

Police said a semi-truck and trailer went off the road near Hasler Flats on Dec. 17, 2020 shortly before 9 p.m. The impact caused an explosion and left the rig's driver severely injured.

The driver told police he went off the road to avoid another oncoming semi carrying a wide load and his story was supported by another witness who managed to avoid the oncoming vehicle despite it veering into the oncoming lane.

RCMP are asking the driver of the wide-load to step forward and for anyone else who may have witnessed the incident to contact the detachment at 250-788-9221 or Crime Stoppers at 1(800) 222-8477.
