Mission Search and Rescue was called out Thursday night when a vehicle went off the road on Norrish Creek Forest Service Road.

Mission Search and Rescue was called out Thursday night to assist the North Fraser Fire Department when a vehicle went off the road on Norrish Creek Forest Service Road.

Team members brought the male driver up approximately 30 metres from the wreckage on a stretcher and delivered him to an awaiting ambulance.

The stretcher was carried out of the steep, rocky ravine using a caterpillar technique and a rope belay.

The condition of the driver is not known at this time.

MSAR has been called to this part of the road (the five kilometre mark) on numerous occasions in the last few years for vehicle and ATV accidents.

MSAR representatives say the sharp corner and steep embankment make this section of road very dangerous.

A film crew for the TV production of Highway Thru Hell was also on scene following Mission Towing on its calls. Look for this incident to be featured on one of its shows next season.
