A local man is recovering after his vehicle went off Ness Lake Road and down a embankment.
Police believe he may have been stranded at the bottom for as much as two days before he crawled 10 metres up the slope. An off-duty emergency services worker came across him late afternoon Thursday and called police and paramedics.
A subsequent search with the help of a police service dog found the vehicle at the bottom of the embankment and through some bush. No one else was found and police believe he was the lone occupant.
Police said he was not wearing a seatbelt and suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries and added the vehicle was not insured.
"Although it is very unusual for something like this to happen it should be a reminder to all drivers to be prepared for the unlikely," Prince George RCMP Cpl. Craig Douglass said.
