RCMP in Revelstoke is searching for three people who allegedly tried to evade police by reversing a stolen truck directly at officers.

The incident unfolded on Thursday (July 23) about 8:20 p.m. after police received a report of a two-vehicle collision east of Revelstoke on the Trans-Canada Highway.

According to Cpl. Madonna Saunderson a Ford Expedition, which had been reported stolen in Foothills County, Alta., had collided with a semi-truck.

Officers from Sicamous, Salmon Arm and the CP Rail Police, joined Revelstoke RCMP in setting up a roadblock on Highway 1 in the Solsqua area to look for the westbound truck.

“The truck was later located on a forest service road off of Maclean Sawmill Road in Malakwa. This vehicle was determined to be stolen, and attempted to evade police by reversing directly at officers,” stated Cpl. Saunderson.

The occupants, two men and a woman, left the vehicle and fled on foot into a forested area.

An RCMP police dog unit tracked the suspects over the heavily wooded area which led to the CP rail tracks and the Eagle River. Despite an extensive search, the suspects were not located. However, the suspects were recorded by a security camera footage from a residence in the area.

The suspects were later seen riding on a black side by side ATV which was reportedly stolen from the area
