STRATFORD, Ont. - A pickup truck driver in southwestern Ontario was recovering in hospital from hypothermia Sunday evening after he crossed a river on foot and then buried himself up to his neck in snow in an attempt to hide from police. Police began searching for the driver of a pickup just west of Kitchener, Ont., after he failed to stop for a cruiser. When the truck became stuck in a ditch, the driver and a passenger took off on foot. A second passenger remained in the vehicle. Police caught the fleeing passenger but it took the assistance of a canine unit to later locate the driver, found buried in snow. He was sent to hospital by ambulance.
