Mysterious single motor vehicle incident at the Hardy Bay Road turnoff

There were footprints located in the mud nearby, indicating somebody walked away from the scene.”

A mysterious single motor vehicle collision at the Hardy Bay Road turnoff has the Port Hardy RCMP hunting for answers.

On Thursday afternoon, Aug. 17, RCMP members “were called to an overturned vehicle in the ditch,” said Port Hardy RCMP Staff Sgt. Wes Olsen.

Upon arrival, the RCMP found the vehicle to be unoccupied, “and it was cold to the touch so it had been there for awhile,” Olsen said, adding the vehicle was not visible at all from the road and was originally spotted by two hikers from a nearby trail.

He confirmed the vehicle was located in a very swampy area, and “there were footprints located in the mud nearby, indicating somebody walked away from the scene.”

The RCMP have checked with the local ambulance and hospital, but were informed that neither organization had dealt with any accident victims.

They are currently trying to contact the registered owner of the vehicle to determine who was driving and if there were any injuries.

“The matter is still under investigation to determine who was driving and how the collision occurred,” said Olsen.
