"We believe that the suspect travelled to Hope in the white Ford F350 he stole from the Good Samaritan who stopped to help", said RCMP spokesperson Const. Melissa Wutke.

The man crashed his own vehicle Monday afternoon, killing his female passenger.

On Monday at about 3 p.m., officers responded from Fraser Valley Traffic Service and Hope to a crash involving an Equinox SUV and maintenance truck about 10 kilometres east of Hope.

But when the crews got out to help, witnesses say the suspect driver took off in one of their pickup trucks. The woman has not been publicly identified, but the coroners service said she was in her 30s. "It appeared as though the SUV involved in the accident was travelling at a high rate of speed and passing vehicles".

"He is described by police as Caucasian, approximately 5'10" tall, with short hair, facial stubble, and a "thin face, slim waist and broad shoulders".

Another motorist in a white Ford F350 came upon the scene and chose to stop, get out of his truck, and see if he could help. "If you see him, do not approach him and please call 9-1-1 immediately". The suspect was last seen wearing a white and red coloured motorcycle style jacket, and tan coloured shorts.

If you have any information, you're asked to contact the Fraser Valley Traffic Service RCMP at 604-702-4039, Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750 or, if you would like to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
