RCMP divers and search and rescue members plied the depths of the Fraser River early Monday morning after a fatal car crash late Sunday night.
Police were called to the intersection of McDonald and Ballam roads just before midnight Sunday to find a concrete barrier was pushed over and a power pole was sheared off.
The evidence suggested a vehicle had left the road and entered the river and, after a short search, Mounties found a dead 36-yearold woman in the river. The victim's name has not been released
A Ford F-150 pickup truck was pulled from the river and the RCMP's Underwater Recovery Team attended Monday morning to try to locate any other victims.
"This was very tragic," RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck said. "We are doing everything we can right now to look for any other possible victims. These searches can be very difficult emotionally on emergency workers and we are very hopeful that there are no further victims involved."
